365 Project #7 Captioning Videos

I've been captioning videos for the deaf, hard-of-hearing and English learners for a couple of years.  Lately I have been subtitling for Khan Academy "...a nonprofit with the mission of providing a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere."

It's easy and fun with the Amara captioning software, and I have the satisfaction of knowing video content is even more accessible to those who need it.  All I need is a pair of headphones, a little time each day, and a little patience.

My computer screen while I'm captioning.  In this video, Sal Khan is explaining how people who are economically challenged can still get a good education and how you can go about it.
