au where the subtitles on netflix shows and the like aren't incorrect

this was inspired by the bandersnatch subtitles incorrectly describing the sound of a sinclair spectrum game as, dial-up modem sounds

but also and more importantly, why do subtitles constantly omit words from the dialogue

don't do that

show us exactly what people are saying

@00dani I don't even get HOW one could fuck this up in scripted shows. But I've read posts from subtitlers saying that they apparently DON'T get the written script when making subtitles, and they have to work under insane time pressure. So the fuck-up is on the subtitlers' bosses.

@00dani yeah, it's infuriating but the bar is way way lower than it ought to be for accuracy
