How level and type of deafness affect user perception of multimedia video clips

S.R. Gulliver, G. Ghinea
2003 Universal Access in the Information Society  
Our research investigates the impact that hearing has on the perception of digital video clips, with and without captions, by discussing how hearing loss, captions and deafness type affects user QoP (Quality  ...  It is shown that captions do not necessarily provide deaf users with a 'greater level of information' from video, but cause a change in user QoP, depending on deafness type, which provides a 'greater level  ...  The following questions were considered: What effect does hearing loss have on user QoP? Do captions help hearing and deaf user QoP? How does deafness type affect user QoP?  ...

2015 PLoS ONE  
Fifty-one deaf and hard of hearing sign language users alternately watched the sign language interpreter videos with, and without, captions. Afterwards, they answered ten questions.  ...  The results showed that the presence of captions positively affected their rates of comprehension, which increased by 24% among deaf viewers and 42% among hard of hearing viewers.  ...  Thanks to the Ljubljana School of the Deaf in Slovenia and the Slovenian Deaf and Hard of Hearing Societies, sign language interpreter Marija Koser and all participants who took part in the study.  ...

The Combined Effect of Captioning and Sign Language in Understanding Television Content in Deaf

Deepika Sharma, Rangasayee Raghunath Rao
2018 Journal of Communication Disorders Deaf Studies & Hearing Aids  
Stimulus consisted of three video-clips taken from Television (TV) program "Shaktimaan" with already incorporated sign language video. Captions were incorporated in two of the video clips.  ...  In the Experimental phase participants were shown three video-clips in three different viewing conditions i.e. with sign language (WSL), with captions only (WC) and with both sign language and captions  ...  The study showed that, although information content can be portrayed in sign language by means of videos of human signers, but the issue of how captions and sign language together, affect comprehension  ...
