Update 12/28/2010: The captvids.com website is no longer available. However, the funny captioned video at the end of this post is still worth a look.
Ask and ye shall receive. Matthew 7:7
Just last week at work, I was complaining to my coworkers about the lack of captioning for Internet videos. I get annoyed to find a video story online that I'd like to know more about only to discover it's not captioned.
Did you know that YouTube is the 4th most visited website in the world? Without captioning, this incredible source of entertainment and news is not fully accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing community. But now there's a new website called captvids.com dedicated to providing access to YouTube videos.
The wonderful Bill Cresswell has teamed up with two other men, Jeff and Danyoul to provide this service. They accept requests for captioning through the forum on their website. They also offer an RSS feed so you can stay current with the videos they're captioning. Be sure to visit their site and if you like what you see, spread the word.
Below is my favorite video from their site. Everyone I've shared it with has gotten a good laugh from it. Enjoy!
