Its amazing what damage 8 years of being around some very noisy military jets does to one's hearing. So for the audible sanity of those around me, can Closed Caption to be added to all the youtube videos from this year fan fest via thier built in function?

While I like the idea of this, it would be difficult for the person who has to watch every video to write the CC.

There's some kind of automatic CC on youtube already. Just switch it on. It'll probably make more sense than the actual audio anyway. And it'll be funnier, too.

being partly deaf myself(i have a hearing aid without it i can barely hear)

i can only say at least my problem can be fixed with a hearing aid(most of the times) yours is another mater.

anyway its a valid point... it could be done with some effort.. download the video and manually add subtitles.)

People actually trolled this topic? How lame.

I would definitely be in support of this however as someone pointed out already, that's alot of work to be done. It would take someone making a transcript of everything said, verifying the transcript with CCP personnel for confirmation of any "accent" interpretations, and then redoing the videos.

Hmmmm... not a bad idea for a community project.

You would be surprised, just look at the Goon answering above.

I think a better solution would perhaps be to create transcripts (which can be digested into CC anyway). It does take a little work, but not all too much more then it takes to watch the actual video.

A few years ago I would have said "Nah too much work."

But since I am becoming hearing impaired myself (deaf in one ear) I can sympathize more with people who can't hear sounds at all.

So yes I support this.

And you guys should support it too, you never know when your own hearing will start to go.

I guess why not?
