Can anyone explain to me why product descriptions do not, as a matter of course, include the info about whether the DVD has a subtitle track?

It's all very patchy. Sometimes the description will tell you, yes there are subtitles and sometimes it says there are none. Great. Infuriating when it's something I really want to see but at least I won't waste money by buying something that I can't, as a deaf person watch.

No, what is really infuriating is when the information is left out completely. Surely I'm not the only person to be affected by this.

Absolutely agree with you.

You are right. Amazon is very inefficient regarding subtitles. I don't buy many DVDs because they don't say whether there are subtitles or not. My reason is that I am foreign and it helps reading English subtitles.

Very-very old discussion, repeated again and again. Amazon doesn't care to inform us about subtitles. Three years ago I mailed them about this and they replied "thanks for asking, it is very important for us to know blah blah". Nothing changed. Six months ago I re-mailed them and a guy replied "you could always consult dvd-subtitles.com". Hehehe are they not funny?

Not even a little bit!
Frankly, I could not even see the relevance of the link.
Surely there must be some governing body or organisation that we can sleep with/appeal to to get some answers.
How hard can it be to put some subtitles on? Or even just say, "Sorry, there ARE NO subtitles."
Why are so few of the stand-up comedians' DVDs subtitled? I'm deaf - not devoid of a the love of a bit of a laugh.
