Hearing impaired subtitles have the sounds noted in the subtitles that a normal hearing person can hear. For example, if the phone rings the notation (phone rings) is included in the subtitles. Those persons that are not hearing impaired do not want the notations there for the sounds they can hear anyway, but hearing impaired persons need them to understand what is going on in the movie.
