This blog is where we announce new videos & talk about the power of explanation & the change it can create. 

All Common Craft Videos, Now with Captions (For Members)

Just a few hours after we published our first production, I learned a valuable lesson about videos.  Someone posted a comment that said something like "This video is great, too bad a deaf person can't benefit from it." Not being experienced with video at the time, it had never occurred to us that most videos are not accessible to the hearing impaired and others.  

Since that time, we've learned about accessibility and that many organizations now require that videos be provided with captions.  For this reason, we recently had our complete library of videos captioned in English using the "open caption" format. 

Here's a sample:

Versions of videos with captions are only available to Common Craft members, who can embed and download them just like any other Common Craft video.  Learn about membership.
