As you may have noticed, there’s a new campaign on the block! Let’s welcome…
Rikki Poynter, deaf YouTuber is an advocate for proper Closed Captioning (CC) on YouTube. She launched a new campaign called #NoMoreCraptions, in the hope of raising awareness about people using YouTube’s automated c(r)aptioning system. I was lucky enough to interview Rikki about her campaign, for my latest ‘Hearing Like Me’ blog. You can read it here.
There are lots of ways you can get involved in this campaign, for starters why not contact your favourite YouTubers and ask them to CC their videos. Also, if you know anyone who is a YouTuber, ask if they would consider making their content more accessible for deaf people. Remember, accessible content attracts a wider audience!
Lets get the word around and hopefully reduce the amount of ‘c(r)aptions’ on YouTube! Remember to use the hashtag on social media: #NoMoreCraptions!
