Abstract
What is text on screen?

Text on screen refers to any type of written text that appears on the screen. Text on screen includes opening credits and end credits, titles, intertitles, and other superimposed titles. Other non diegetic elements such as logos and diegetic elements which are part of the scene (a letter, a text message or a wall poster, for instance) may also contain written language. Subtitles can also be considered as text on screen: they can either appear as part of the original film (especially in multilingual productions) or they can be a translation of original dialogues for other audiences (see chapter 3.3 on AST).
