Subtitle data carried by MPEG-2 transport stream includes texts of dialogs in bitmap graphics format. However, this data is not reachable for the blind audience. In addition, carrying extra compatible data with subtitle packets can be helpful for testing subtitle software automatically and for presenting live content (i.e. latest news or special advertisements). In this paper, we propose a method for converting subtitle data into text format by recognizing characters using neural networks. The converted data can be used for blind television users and testing subtitle software automatically. We also define a new subtitle segment for carrying test comparison data and a new subtitle page for representing live content. We present our implementation on Linux platform.
