Last week, I watched a wonderful video on Rick Mercer's YouTube channel. For those without access to Canadian teevee, Rick Mercer is a fairly funny bloke who pokes fun at politicians, celebrities and also explores various aspects of Canadiana.
I liked this one particular video a lot as I have a thing for bears. I decided to caption it so that all D/deaf and hard of hearing peeps could enjoy it too. This was a bit of a stupid decision on my part since I'm hard of hearing myself! D'oh!
I did this via Overstream which is a web-based editor that lets you create and synchronize words to any online video; use it for adding captions, making video greetings, etc. Brilliant stuff!
Instead of embedding the original video, I'm forcing all of you, hearing peeps and otherwise, to watch the captioned version cos it took me friggin' forever to do this! haha! Actually, it was fun and I think the video is just great.
I hope you enjoy it!
To see a bigger version of the video go here. The big version didn't fit on my blog.
Feedback about the captions would be appreciated!
