Tips: Several Kinds of DVD/Movie Subtitles 

DVD/Movie Subtitles are textual versions of the dialog or scene in DVD film videos displayed at the bottom of the screen, to have viewers understand the spoken dialogue or the signs better. 

Soft Subtitle is involved in the actually DVD video, but is independent of the movie video. When ripping a DVD, it’s usually titled “Track”. 

Hard Subtitle, contrary to soft subtitles, attaches itself into the actual video and would always come along with the video. 

Forced Subtitle appears on screen when a foreign/alien language is spoken, or showed in a sign, location, or other text, aiming to explain the meaning but can not be placed in the dubbing. When ripping a DVD, it’s directly titled “Forced Subtitle”. 

Note: Generally, only the foreign dialogues and signs that matter the movie plot are translated in the forced subtitle. 

With the forced subtitles in DVD movies, you never need to worry about the foreign and alien language any more. And when it is just English dialogue, you can enjoy full screen watching without subtitles displaying.
