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



Definitely depends on the video. I have rarely seen a script for a
"talking head" interview video, but of course anything animated or
image-based would have one. (Mike, correct me if I'm wrong, since I
haven't been involved with video production for a few years.)
