    • Confirmed
    • Accessibility, Sound

      Some subtitles show up even if the player is too far away to hear the sound. So far this seems to affect:

      • Block broken (Sheep eating grass)
      • Bottle smashes
      • Bat takes off
      • Dispenser/droppers (item dispensed, dispenser failed)
      • Door/trapdoor/fence gate creaks (opening/closing)
      • Firework launches
      • Bee buzzes

      This is best reproduced on a Superflat world with the "Void" preset (with subtitles on of course).

      To reproduce bottle:
      Fly up to around y=40 and throw a bottle; the "Bottle Smashes" subtitle should appear even though the player is well out of the audible range. It will show up to y=67 if you throw straight down.

      To reproduce bat:

      • Type "/setblock 0 10 0 stone" and spawn a bat under a stone block (manually using a spawn egg).
      • Fly up to around y=60 and type "/setblock 0 10 0 air"; "Bat takes off" should show up.
