Universal Subtitles

While YouTube offers great and simple tools to make captions, there are numerous videos online offered in other formats such as Vimeo that at this time do not support captions.

To solve this problem, Universal Subtitles developed an online software that allows you to embed videos with subtitles without changing your current publishing workflow. This is also a great solution if you want certain videos online be accessible via captions but cannot log in their accounts in order to add captions.

Economic Model of Disability

Welcome to the new website! Most blog posts will focus on access to audio via captions, but occasionally there will be blog posts about deafness and hearing loss in general, various technologies and communication types (such as hearing aids, cochlear implants, visual alerts, sign language, cued speech, interpreters, etc.) as well as about foreign language speakers and literacy issues – anything related to communication and information access that is based on universal design.

The reason the blog starts off with focusing on the economic model of disability is because many people think that universal access is something that benefits only people with disabilities. The more we learn about this model, the more we understand how it has evolved and why it benefits everyone, including businesses that find great solutions for customers with disabilities. It would also help businesses and individuals better understand why captioning is universal and benefits millions more people than just those who are deaf and hard of hearing.
