Hello. I just realized that you aren't allowed to copy and paste so I will do this the right way.
By the way: I'm on subbed.

Dubbed anime allows the viewer to focus on the actual anime and artwork while listening to the speech rather than being distracted from the anime itself by having to read text the whole time.

Dubbed takes far more effort and resources tp produce than subbed because it is so much better and higher quality.

"Dubbed anime allows the viewer to focus on the actual anime and artwork while listening to the speech rather than being distracted from the anime itself by having to read text the whole time."
Subbed anime actually still has sound but it's just in Japanese. If you watch more and more subbed anime, you will be able to get the hang of it. Still, it shouldn't be too hard to just read and watch at the same time.

"Dubbed takes far more effort and resources to produce than subbed because it is so much better and higher quality." The subbed anime actually was the one that got all the animation done. The dubbed only needs voice actors and that's it. The subbed anime takes much longer than the dubbed anime.

The subtitling of an anime is not done by the producers of the anime. It is usually done by fans who speak both Japanese and another language and where there is no available dub at the time. This is why the subbed anime is always about 20-40 episodes ahead of the dubbed one.

Voice acting is far harder than transcribing as you need different actors per char and can't just be some fan on your computer editing away.

The fact that you can watched subbed anime and get the gist of what's going on doesn't disprove that it's more difficult and less enjoyable for the viewer to have to force their brain to work harder to take it all in; most people watch anime to relax.
