Resumen:   Viewers with a hearing loss need to assimilate, process and integrate the information conveyed by the subtitles and the images in order to gain full access to audiovisual content. This process involves a set of complex cognitive mechanisms and the extent of factors that may affect it is large and varied. This study investigates the reception of subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing among three types of viewers with a different hearing and communication profile: hearing, deaf-sign language users and deaf-spoken language users. The main objective was to investigate whether and how participants' profile and subtitling speed of exposure affect reception. Three versions of subtitles were analyzed according to its speed of exposure: high (with an average duration of between one and two seconds), medium (between two to four seconds) and low (between four to six seconds); with a different number of subtitles and segmentation and displayed at a rate of 15 characters per second. […] The results obtained in this study confirm that the viewers' profile affected all the stages of reception. Surprisingly, more differences were observed between the two groups with hearing loss than between them and the hearing group. The use of generalized linear models in the statistical analysis allowed the inclusion of the variable of adjustment "reading skills", which turned out to play a crucial role on the overall process of reception. Results indicate that differences between profiles might be more due to reading-related factors than to hearing, language and communication aspects. The subtitling speed of exposure influenced the distribution of attention between the subtitles and the image but did not affect significantly reaction and repercussion. [Source: Author]
