    I am deaf. Are these resources captioned or accessible in some other way?

      I have great news for you. I decided to go ahead and publish these five video podcasts for free on YouTube, and the automatic closed captioning option in YouTube seems to work VERY well from what I saw tonight. Here’s the direct link to this video:


      I’m SO excited YouTube offers this automatic / free transcription option! Please let me know if this works for you and what you think. There appear to be some errors but mostly the transcriptions I see are GOOD.
