Part 2, of Project: Closed Caption was motivated in part by the first posting/experience. After editing the closed captions (CC) on my last video I made this video in response. Since I had the CC experience I started watching the videos with the CC on and noticed how many of those videos had mistakes.
I don’t think many of the content creators give it much thought because the mistakes are there. From simple grammatical errors to omissions, to adding in text never said. Very eye-opening. It bothered me to see it and I wanted to attempt to get others creators to check their CC.
I made a video challenging others to watch and proofread their most viewed video in 5 minutes of total silence. Not sure if it will work to motivate others to do it but it’s worth a try. If you read this, please share the video with others and challenge them to the Silence Challenge. -13
