YouTube -Described Captioned Media

YouTube – dcmpnad’s Channel.

I will bet you didn’t know that the described captioned media program has some sign language videos available for free on you tube.  I learned a new sign while I was watching the Vocabulary Builders in Sign Language for English. (I knew how to sign ‘character’ but not ‘characteristic’).

The YouTube  movie is not searchable but I imagine the DVD that you can borrow from DCMP would be more effectively utilized.  I think its great that DCMP is moving along side us in this century!

Tell how you liked it.

“Google to caption YouTube videos”

I don’t want to let on just how excited I am about this bit of news but it is almost the same excitement I felt when captioned TV became accessible “way back when.”.  The New York Times is reporting: “In the first major step toward making millions of videos on YouTube accessible to deaf and <sic> hearing-impaired people, Google unveiled new technologies on Thursday that will automatically bring text captions to many videos on the site”
