I have a question for those who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing, and for the wider disability community at large. It is a question that has been concerning me, and I fear it might be controversial. But I’m not one to shy from asking the tough questions. And I really DO want to understand. So I hope someone can explain it to me.
Over the last several days, many people on Twitter posted links to what appear to be interesting videos. Unfortunately, none of these videos were captionned. I am "only" hard of hearing and mostly have no big issues functioning. But phone calls and online videos are two occurences of giving me a really hard time. Hard to subtitle or caption phone calls. Not so hard to caption videos – if the system you use allows it.
