Improvements for hearing impaired

Today, I decided I will code something, so I remembered to one topic in our forum, where user MisterHarbies asked for help to deaf people. Actually, it is better use trac for suggestions, but I accept this too, ofcourse. Now, when searching, you can select, if you want subtitles for Hearing Impaired in advanced settings. Search results and subtitle details are marked with small icon. Of course, upload page and report page was updated too. XMLRPC API have to wait a little bit.

Currently, there are 16025 subtitles for hearing impaired. Technically speaking, I just parsed all subtitle files, and if more than 3 occurences of “[…]” was inside, I marked subtitles for hearing impaired, not the best, but good start I hope.

Also good news is, it seems we hacked a little bit httpd config, so site should work a lot faster šŸ™‚

  1. I have just discovered this possibility of matching subtitles to downloaded movies… I am excited, but I wonder if one can also ownload subtitles in the same language of the original movie, dialogues in English with subtitles in English, sort of a transcription…. It would be great for studying the ƃĀ²enguage. The French TV5 already does this, but I can’t record their subtitled flms because their subtitles are through televideo and so it’ impossible. Thanks a lot!

    You can download subtitles in any language they’re available. I always download subtitles in english for english-spoken programs. If the subtitles are available you should be able to download them, no matter the language.
