A method of electronically processing a broadcast subtitle signal so as to merge lines of subtitles and correct possible transmission errors allows subtitles to be rendered and/or stored in a form suitable for further text processing and, in particular, keyword searches. Applications of the method or computer program or system implementing the method include the creation, maintenance, indexing or searching of a multimedia library or database, in particular when the literary comprises broadcast television programmes and the corresponding subtitles.
