It is maddening when captioning shows on a commercial a few times and not on another. Or a show series will be captioned when I watch it over the air broadcast station, but when I watch it in a different town on a friends's cable network, the captions will be stripped out because they forgot to toggle a switch... Yet when I would call to have them turn it back on, they refuse to own up their part of the process and start blaming the producer for not including it in the master tapes uploaded to all stations two weeks earlier. There is always a way for someone to "pass the buck..."

Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

me too always looking for captioning what irks me is they will caption a commercial and show it once with captiioning and never again..that is a master control function at the broadcasting station..and then there are those things cbs.cares it looks like stuff i would l;ike to be a part of no captioning
and then msnbc the lean forward series of ads i surely would love to see that in captioning also

wishful thinking i'm sure because the hearing world has no clue about deafness at all none period

Was curious if anyone here has a ROKU device ( www.roku.com )? Many people (Hearing, I think mostly!!) are buying one of these devices for less than $100 and then it is plugged in between their TV and the Internet provider (the cheaper models it just picks up the WIFI - you'll have to type in your WIFI name and password so that it knows how to connect).

Anyway the "bill of goods" presented to me that sold me was that allegedly anything that was captioned on the Internet would show up captioned on the Roku.

But so far, I'm not finding that to be the case.

I do need to test it with the NetFlix though... since I can go on Phlixie ( www.phlixie.com ) to find the current captioned titles on Netflix (evidently there is a certain amount of rotation in the titles, depending on when their licensing expires.).

I found some foreign language websites that have SUBTITLED content and I can tell it's subtitled the way it displays and does not present the embedded code that the closed caption decoder on my TV will display when it is "on" ("on" means it will reveal the embedded code - otherwise it just passes on the screen like invisible ink.).

Anyway... I may just be talking to myself. That's okay. Just "nutty as a loon" as my husband would say...
