I'm hard of hearing and I'm very upset that so much online video is not captioned and is therefore inaccessible to me. I want to contact online video providers - especially news organizations, documentary filmmakers and businesses - to strongly encourage them to provide closed captions, and I'm looking for your advice on an effective approach.

What is the english language subtitle font used in many asian films, such as this one
? Why is it so predominant, despite its lack of clarity? Any/as much information about it is appreciated.
There is a film series of short films called "cities of love." The most common one is "New York, I love you." and "Paris, j t'aime" which are all over the place. However, my friend said "Moskva, ya lyublyu tebya!" (Moscow, I love you) is really good, but I can't find the English subtitles. I already have the movie, I just need the subtitles file. (Though hints on finding the movie with subtitles is also appreciated!)
Any ideas where to look? This movie seems to be really obscure!

Can I extract subtitles from TV shows that I record on a PVR into an *.srt file? I'm recording TV in Australia; my PVR records into files called *.ts, which I believe might be mpeg2, but also contain the subtitles that are broadcast. I've been compressing the recordings into avi files with Freemake, but then I lose the subtitles. Is there an easy to use program that will take a *.ts file and output an avi and and srt file? I've tried Subrip, but it didn't recognise the *.ts file. Thanks!

I'd like to find, or build, a tool for stripping differently encoded text from bilingual (Chinese/English) text documents. Bonus - since this is for subtitles, I need to be able to train it to recognize timecodes and unique characters like returns and hyphens. Double bonus - I know jack about programming, but since the only way to do this right now I have is by hand, which costs me hours and hours of tedium and is putting me at risk for carpal tunnel, I'm definitely willing to put in the time to learn.

I have two files, an Adobe Encore subtitle file of a particular film, and a dialogue list txt (no times) of a newer, shorter cut of that same film, which is to say that there is nothing in the short cut that isn't in the longer cut. I want to ensure that's the case and check the two versions for consistency, i.e. make sure the content in the new/shorter version matches the dialogue in the old/longer version. Is there an automated way to do this that doesn't involve CTL+F and a lot of cutting and pasting? Bonus challenge: the subtitle file is En/Chinese, the dialogue transcript is Chinese. I'm checking to make sure the Chinese is consistent. [more inside]
Using Handbrake, is there a way to put subtitles onto DVD when they are interspersed in the real movie? Example: the movie Defiance had some English subtitles when characters spoke Russian/German. These didn't come through when I made my first trial run disc. So basically I'm asking for situational subtitles if I can call them that and not the full movie-lenght subtitle added throughout the whole movie. Thanks for your input.
