Happy New Year!

Have a good one, whatever you’re doing! Me and my boyfriend are steering clear of crowds and overpriced bars and have elected to stay home, drinking gin and watching movies. All’s been quiet on I Swoon Over Fictional Men since I started my new job, but I just haven’t had the energy to post. I spend most of my workday on the computer and when I get home, I just need to give my eyes a break. Once I’m all settled at work, though, I’ll be back. In the meantime, watch your TVs with subtitles! Maybe you’ll see something subtitled by little old me!

  1. Happy New Year to you too, Jazz! I’m interested to hear that you are doing subtitles! I watch most shows with subtitles on because I find that there’s often dialog that’s mumbled by the actors (or is it the sound systems? Or, heaven forbid, me??) I just catch a few phrases and things otherwise missed. I’m also glad to hear that humans are still involved, because sometimes I wonder, LOL!

    1. Thank you! ❤ You're not alone. Most people I know use subtitles actually and the taxi driver who picked me up from work the other night said he reckons it's the sound systems on new TVs too.
      I never knew it was people who did subtitles either until I applied for the job either. It's actually a massive industry surprisingly. There is sound recognition technology involved but people are needed to edit the stuff it comes out with because unless the speakers have a 'standard' accent (whatever that is!) it comes out with all sorts of weird and wonderful things 😛
