As an avid fan of radio storytelling (Snap Judgment, The Moth, Write About Now, etc.) this is swoon-worthy for me. To be able to tap into storytelling in a language I don't speak is a helpful way to get a taste of another culture. That people got this project up and running is a delightful discovery this morning.

Wow, as a person who is hard of hearing and loves learning about other places, this is catnip to me.

How does one do English subtitling on radio?

"Simultaneous video text translation" isn't a very elegant term. If you click on any of the programs, you'll understand quickly why it's just referred to as subtitling.

Inelegantly, from the sounds of it.
