I whole heartedly agree with you. I use close captions all the time but its never timed properly with the voice. I use Bluetooth earbuds when watching TV so I can understand what is being said. Todays shows talk so fast that it is hard to understand. I guess that’s so the networks can get more commercials in and make more money. Roku does allow for Bluetooth listening and I have to use wired ear buds. It is inconvenient with wires hanging but even worse yet, if my wife is watching the show also, there is no sound for her if I have the wired ear buds plugged into the remote. I will try using an extra Bluetooth set of ear buds and sink them to my iPhone and then use the Roku App on my iPhone. Maybe (?) this might be a solution to listening to Roku on me Bluetooth ear buds and external volume will also be heard. I’ll give that a try.
