Captions on spark videos would greatly help lots of people!

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

There are many hard of hearing and deaf people who rely on captions to understand videos. It is not a small population. Please provide this service for us.

I posted that on the tech help message board. If lots of us ask, maybe this will happen!

Thanks, Chris

    YES!! I love this many days extra "noise" an in videos is an irritant in our home and if I could just read what they are saying it would be wonderful!!! Also I am a visual learner and if I read the words it is a double learning and comprehension.

    That is a great idea - I was a little puzzled when I saw your title because most blogs are written. Now that I see what your blog is about, I totally agree and think it would be a fabulous addition to SP.

    You are so right!! Plus sometimes videos don't work on these older computers and we miss out because there isn't a print version!! Good job bring this up!

    Thank you. I will ask again too. I would love to be able to read what Coach Nicole is saying on the exercise videos. For now, I just try to follow her movements but know I miss so much. emoticon
