Closed Captioning: More Ingenious than You Know

From Technology Connections.

You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below
Over the years I’ve found that there are plenty of people who use captions, not just those who need them. But did you know that it took until the 1970’s for anyone to think of putting captions on TV? I can sort of understand that, since captions might be annoying if you don’t want them, but closed captioning would save the day and provide access to all, but only when needed.

Here’s the link for making translated captions for my videos:

Please don’t feel compelled to do it, but if you’d like to give a bit of your time, I promise you’ll get that imaginary badge!

And here’s those captioning glasses:

(sadly, it looks like the creators had started an indiegogo for this, and it failed pretty badly. Quite a shame, as this could be quite useful! However, I suppose a phone app might be good enough. Might be)
