We hope you’ve had a chance to check out our Inauguration YouTube channel, featuring videos recorded by President-elect Obama, Michelle Obama, PIC Executive Director Emmett Beliveau, and others.

President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden are committed to making this inauguration the most accessible in history. In line with that pledge, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve partnered with Project readOn to add closed captioning to our YouTube videos. (You can more information about Project readOn here.)

Visit our YouTube page to use the new captioning functionality and be sure to watch Kal Penn’s video announcing our USAservice.org video competition. The deadline to submit a video is tonight at 11:59pm. Submit a video about your Martin Luther King Jr. Day service plans today and you could receive a personal call from Michelle Obama.

  1. why is this site viewable only in the United States? I am in contact with English teachers in Japan who want to show the inauguration with captions and we’re not able to find another site that has it.
