Deafness severely limits your ability to enjoy BBC services.
Reductions are available for Blind persons, as they should be, as they can only enjoy the services partially, in audible format.
A Profoundly Deaf person can also only enjoy the services partially, in a visual form. They cannot listen to any of the 59 radio stations which the license fee also pays for, which in itself justifies a suitable reduction.
Subtitling is dreadfully slow, frequently inaccuracte, which leads to incorrect information. They are often missing on many older programmes. It also relies on a persons ability to read extremely well and quickly, be free from dyslexia and also assumes perfect vision to see them clearly.
It is time this disability was recognised fully in line with others and a discount was offered in line.
