    The first part means that the original soundtrack voices have been recorded over with the English version (it has been dubbed into English).
    I'm not sure about "Annotation Subbed". The second word probably means "subtitled" or "substituted" but I don't know what the "annotation" might be.
    High Definition (HD) refers to the enhanced quality of the original film.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    May I add a little to the original reply? Actually "dubbing" means the original sound was replaced by an English equivalent, not simply recorded over. "Annotating" in this case means to add written information to clarify or explain a visual object. Thus the annotation probably took the form of sub-titles placed on or over the original video.

    What is the difference between recording over with the English version and replacing with an English equivalent?

    A lot. In many situations some of the original will still be audible. If you have had the experience of tuning in a radio station with a weak signal which is physically located close to a stronger audio signal from another station, you get a sense or what happens when you try to record over an audio source rather than replacing it.
