 captions anyway?!?

 captions will often times delete typos as they try and keep up and then
 re-enter the correct word.  So the typo will be sent, displayed, then
 removed, and replaced.

 Actually, I see backspaces in pre-recorded shows too.  In a couple shows,
 every apostrophe is sent out as apostrophe-backspace-apostrophe.  In
 another show, some (but not all) accented French letters are set out
 without the accent first, then backspaced, and sent again with the accent.
