Description

Subtitles and Captions are one form of Sound Visualization that may allow overcoming transient or permanent inabilities to perceive sound stimuli, through textual representation. It is also the common alternative to Dubbing when there is Voice Acting.

Whilst "subtitles" typically refer to Dialogue, "captions" ("closed captions") refer to textual description of whatever aspects of occurring sound may be considered relevant, including features of Dialogue like mood and intensity and the identification of the talking character to avoid ambiguities.

Solutions adopted for the identification of the talking character include using the name of the character as a prefix, icons with the character’s face, and text colour.

Other aspects of captions follow the same patterns as captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing in movies.

Examples

Dead to Rights: Retribution: The name of the character preceding the subtitles leaves no doubt about who the speaker is, even while out of sight.
Half-Life 2: Very detailed captions describe each relevant sound.
Cut the Rope: A caption in the form of a stylized onomatopoeia.

Patapon: Speech balloons represent messages that are not actually heard.
