I'd like to know if there is a way to hear ATC and pilots' communications, with subtitles.

    $\begingroup$ With subtitles? Who do you think could possibly add that much text to live audio?? $\endgroup$ – abelenky Jul 19 '18 at 13:14

    $\begingroup$ I mean automatic subtitles such as the youtube subtitles option $\endgroup$ – Louis350 Jul 19 '18 at 13:21

    $\begingroup$ I removed your second question completely: please ask only one question at a time. If you haven't already seen the tour it might be helpful to understand how this site works. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Jul 19 '18 at 13:35

    $\begingroup$ Not an answer, but if your goal is to understand what you're hearing then you don't need live audio to do that. You can listen to any ATC recordings with subtitles and use them to 'practice' and then eventually listen to live audio. Some subtitles may not be completely accurate but that's probably always going to be an issue, whether the audio is live or not. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Jul 19 '18 at 14:06

    $\begingroup$ Is there any way to authoritatively answer this question in the negative? My strong suspicion is that there are no such sites, based on (1) nobody being aware of one, (2) the very limited utility & high technical difficulty in implementing such a service, for a very slight audience within what is already a "niche" field. But can I say with certainty that there are none, at all, anywhere? Nope... no more than I can prove Bigfoot doesn't exist. $\endgroup$ – Ralph J Aug 18 '18 at 15:01

Not live with subtitles, but there are certainly plenty of ATC/pilot recordings on youtube https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=atc+conversations

Plus Live ATC streams. I can't access these (lousy cell phone coverage), give them a try. https://www.liveatc.net/topfeeds.php

  • $\begingroup$ +1 Some of the ATC recordings on YouTube come with on-screen captioning and/or diagrams to help the viewer make sense of the events in the video. $\endgroup$ – Zach Lipton Jul 19 '18 at 21:22
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know if the question was edited after your answer, but they're asking for live ATC audio with subtitles, which none of your links provide. $\endgroup$ – John Wiseman Jul 20 '18 at 5:28

    $\begingroup$ Live captioning does not exist that I am aware of. Live captioning is also not needed to get used to the conversation flow. Recorded with captioning will do. $\endgroup$ – CrossRoads Jul 20 '18 at 13:34
