Someone tell me that there is a way to unsubscribe from a comment thread on YouTube ‘cos I don’t need this headache.

A novel that’s pretty much porn and only about the men and here I am downloading it anyway because it’s free.

I’m probably gonna kick myself for this later but I’m bored and in the mood so let’s see if I can get through 332 pages without wanting to pull my hair out.

[downloads Beyond Shame. On page 13.] most sexist crap I’ve read in a while, DELETE.

That didn’t last long.

I appreciate that there are CC on certain tv shows, programs, events… but what bothers me the most is that there is barely or no CC on Youtube videos. YOUTUBE videos.

Us d/Deaf/Hard of hearing people put CC on our videos and hell we can barely/can’t hear a thing! Yet we take…

I have about 100 Youtube videos (and my whole channel just passed 4 million views so people are definitely watching) and I wish I had CC’ed them all to begin with, instead of now! I am going through and CCing ALL of them and wow, it takes a long time. But it is totally worth it to make my videos more accessible.

Us d/Deaf/Hard of hearing people put CC on our videos and hell we can barely/can’t hear a thing! Yet we take twice as long and more time to accommodate the people like who would appreciate CC.

We still have to advocate to the hearing world “Can you please add CC to your videos? Proper CC? Not the automatic ones?” We say this because Proper CC is way more accurate than Automatic CC. Some hearing people turn the CC on and make fun of how inaccurate the CC is to the audio. Us d/Deaf/HoH people have to rely on the text displayed on the screen. We think that those inaccurate CCs you hearing people see/make fun of, is what is actually being said (which completely throws us off). Another reason why some of us don’t watch Youtube videos (or any) because of the inaccuracy. 

We politely ask the Youtube Community to put Proper CC on, yes it may take “Extra time” but you’ll have more viewers from the Deaf Community if you add those proper CC. It doesn’t need to be from the very first video you ever showed… just start from This Point On.

Try watching a movie/show/video on mute. Try figuring out what is being said. Did you understand anything? I doubt it. Now, try having it on mute with Subtitles/CC, now did you understand? - See this is how us d/Deaf/HoH have to deal with everyday. 

Please Put Proper CC On Your Videos.

We would really appreciate it.
