# Character Encoding Problem with ReadList

I have a .srt file (subtitle file) with the following text:

Chapitre 1 : Systèmes d'équations linéaires et matrices

subRip = ReadList[subRibFile, String];


I get:

How can I avoid that ?

• What do you get if you do Import[ subRibFile, "Text"]? – Jason B. Oct 7 '18 at 11:10

subRipIm = Import[subRibFile, "Text", CharacterEncoding -> "UTF8"];
