For us foreigners (i am Dutch, living in Germany)with good knowledge of the English language and also for a lot of native Englisch speakers, English subtitle comes in very handy to assure a relaxed viewing.
I have been reading the technical information and feedbacks on Amazon USA and UK (and lot's of different places) and find it very hard to find the information i am looking for: Which subtitles are supplied with the West Wing Collection? The only way to find was to order the damn thing which i, ofcourse, do not regret at all.
To solve the subtitle mystery i had to unwrap the box, so far for a refund when dissapointed. For all you not native English speakers and people withe a hearing problem, i have good news!
1. All discs have Engish subtitles AND English for the hearing impaired.
2. There are lot's of other subtitles, not the same on all discs:
Season 1: Engish + English for hearing impaired
Season 2: Engish + English for hearing impaired
Season 3: English for hearing impaired, English, French, Arabic, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Hebrew.
Season 4: English, English for hearing impaired, Frensch Arabic, Dutch, Swedish, Hebrew, Norwegian.
Season 5: English, English for hearing impaired, French, Arabic, Hebrew
Season 6: English, English for hearing impaired, Dutch, Greek, Finnish, Swedisch, Hebrew, Arabic
Season 7: Says on the box only English/Dutch but in menu of dvd: English, Dutch, Norwegian, Portugese.
Bonus Features DVD: English, Danisch, Dutch, French, Norwegian, Swedish
French soundtrack on season 3 and 4 (says on the box, not checked...)
I hope this is helpfull!
