Huh?  
Check out this Snopes article on a humourous error in the closed-captioning of a live news story.
Aside from being a funny story in its own right, take a moment to ponder the opening sentence of their explanation:

"Most viewers who frequently watch television with closed captioning (CC) enabled have likely noticed that the captioning doesn't always match the audio."

Think about that for a second.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that most viewers who frequently watch TV with closed captioning actually have a very hard time noticing when the captions don't match the audio.
 
 
 
Very inconvenient, as now I have no shaving-glassdzurlady on November 30th, 2007 12:50 am (UTC)
My tv doesn't support captioning, but if it did I'd watch more shows with it on. People mutter, background noise/music is too loud...

I guess I'd say the same to you as I did to lonecow, but maybe if enough people use CC for those reasons the Snopes suggestion is less silly than I thought.
