Why doesn’t The Post have closed captioning on its videos? Q&A

This is a recent question from a reader. Have a question? Submit it to our latest question thread.

Q: I am hearing-impaired as are many of The Post’s readership — with Gallaudet here, and 30 million hearing-impaired and deaf people in the U.S. alone. When are you going to get with the program and caption your videos?— AdventurerVA

A: From Andrew Pergam, director of video

We want to be able to include closed captioning on all of our videos but can't put a timetable on it.  We are looking for technologically feasible and cost-effective solutions to this challenge and are open to ideas.
