  • Re: Best practices on video captioning/subtitling

    I fixed the DNS on Screenfont.CA, and it now works again.

    Two of my responses in this thread have “mysteriously” disappeared. I am the last remaining lifer in the captioning business and am the only actual expert on caption and subtitle typography. But if what I write here is going to get deleted behind my back, Fabio will have to mail me directly.

    Upon closer inspection, I see these two issuances from Ray:

    • I’ve designed a typeface based on FCC closed caption specifications.

      That’s like reconstructing a human face from a driver’s-licence photograph. Ray’s contribution can be disregarded, I think.
    • I’m not sure what the difference between captions and subtitles is. I’ve never looked into that. I’d also like to know.

    In other words, Ray Larabie designed a captioning font from a specification book and without being able to differentiate captions and subtitles. Yet my responses are getting voted down.

    Do you want my help or not?

  • Re: Glyphs vs Robofont

    A basic function of a so-called moderator of a discussion forum is to correct unintentional yet glaring errors like the one found in the post title.

    Bare URLs are a poor means of presentation. So-called moderators should step in and edit such postings.

    Now get those stopwatches going for downvoting this comment into oblivion.

    True malice is rare.
    Someone not routinely victimized by it would think so, yes.
