ore kes tra

Do you turn on the subtitles (teletext?) when you watch TV? We do. And if you don’t, you should.

We started this originally because we had the volume down where it was a little hard to hear. Why not just turn it up? Didn’t want to wake the baby. We still don’t wanna wake the boys, and have come to enjoy reading along to our favourite shows. DVDs are great, subtitles!

But it’s the TV subtitles that make us laugh. Especially the shows that are providing captions live. Good on them for all the hard work they’re doing; but on the other hand, employ a typist!! Someone who can type fast and accurate. Not like me—I type like a programmer… hitting the keys involves lots of trial and error, debugging and correcting—more like my Mum. Now there’s someone who can type!

What has all this to do with the topic? Ore kes tra. That’s how they spell orchestra on Australian Idol. See, you should turn subtitles on. You’ve no idea of the comedy you’re missing 🙂

  1. ore kes tra! That’s terrible. 🙂 Are they hiring typists who list English as a second (or even third) language? *hehe*Now I’m wondering how one might go about getting a job like that. I mean, I’m thinking it would be a good way to spend my summer break.. sitting at a computer typing while watching TV. Sounds pretty sweet. 😉

  2. The woman would die if she saw that. She has this aversion to typos. if she sees one in a restaurant menu it’ll bother her the whole meal and spoil things.
