The Price of (Not?) Captioning

I was just looking up a link ad that came up with my gmail (which for some odd reason I get lots of ads about captioning).

This place will caption a 90 minute movie for about $600 bucks, including encoding for line 21 captions.

$6/minute, plus $50.

TV Spots for $50 up to 60 seconds.

Don’t you think it’s ridiculous NOT to spend that much extra for captions? How can you be so foolish as to spend all that money on a commericial, and not add $50 for captioning?

Yet check out these guys who report on who is/isn’t captioning their commercials! http://captionhunt.com/

It’s just plain silly.
