add in the other sounds eg. (knock, knock) when there is a knock at the door or, (a gunshot is heard in the background)
SDH is purportedly better and easier to read because of how the words appear on the screen. There are other differences and only a person who really likes details would want to read this:

I've been fooled with a DVD (netflix) subtitles where only words that are foreign (to the English) are subtitled, leaving the rest of the movie unintelligable to me. That might be just one sentence.
