Re: [Osdc-list] Fwd: Open and Closed -- Closed-captions for opensource.com videos?

It looks like (from a quick search) we're just uploading to YouTube and then embedding them. YouTube already has the closed-captioning functionality:

So it seems it would be a simple matter of getting the account access to those who are interested in doing it...

Hi, folks - wanted to chime in on this... Kevin's a friend of mine from Gallaudet, and reminded me that opensource.com is not yet accessible to those who need captioning for video.

We *can* crowdsource the work - I'm not asking the video producers to add more work to their plate for what I know is already a labor-intensive thing. But I would like to know... if volunteers stepped up with time and skill, what would need to happen to make captions possible with the system that osdc is using for video?

This is a partially selfish question, by the way. For those of you who don't yet know, I'm deaf. :)

I figured you may want to add your voice (or apply pressure to the
right nerves of the powers-that-be) regarding video content posted to
opensource.com, given both your contacts, and a vested interest in the
outcome. ;-)
