Cool Stuff For Blind, Deaf, or Non-Verbal People
I used to help out donating closed captions for TommyEdisonExperience (TXP) and Blind Film Critic (BFC).
1. Glad they are continuing to add closed captioning.
2. Showing Interesting stuff at the Annual International Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego, California.

The Avengers (2012)

Most Watched: The Avengers
It took less than 9 months to overthrow the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 1 trailer, and has 800 more views than #2, Hunger Games
Most Translated: 4 Way Tie!
Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Lockout, and Toy Story 3 have all been translated by volunteers into 5 other languages.
These are happy/sad things to report.
Happy: People are captioning and translating these to be helpful and for the love and fun of it.
Sad: This is all unpaid, free publicity for movies that spend mega millions on production, but rarely put out a movie trailer with captions on TV or the internet. [they have put some trailers on TV] Shouldn’t someone be paid for this?
Happy: Glad that DotSUB provides free tools to do this.
