The computer that I use at home to watch dvds has decided that while it will display subtitles while the dvd player window is small, it will not display them in full screen mode. Or it won’t display them consistently.
Clearly, the solution is for me to suck it up and become completely fluent in French, German, and Italian. Immediately. (Or, alternately, I could listen to nothing but Handel oratorios and Benjamin Britten operas for the foreseeable future. And while I like both Handel and Britten, this is not necessarily a proposition I am prepared to commit myself to. I suppose there’s also John Adams, though. And all those ENO productions in English. Even so, this seems sort of extreme as a solution to a software problem.)
