Gentlemen, Ms.;

I Am Operating On Windows Xp, With A Fully Loaded Presario,(compaq)
As Far As Operating Systems Go, I Still Have Plenty Of Room To Install
Other Stuff. Here Is The Problem; I Am Profoundly Deaf, As Of 2 Years Ago,
And I Have Tried Going Through Tech Support For Hp, Microsoft, And Comcast
My Provider. I Am Looking For A "plug-in" That Will Support Closed-captioned
For Webforums, Newscasts, And General Video Supported Web Pages. I Realize
That Before I Lost My Hearing, That Material First Has To Be Encoded Before
This Could Happen; But I Also Know, I Haven't Kept Up With Technology As Much,
In This Area As I Should. Do You Have Any Ideas, Per-say??

Thanks, James

James,

The problem is not with your computer, but with web designers and software.

There is a multitude of options for "ease of use", but as far as captioning existing websites, it is up to the designers. the ADA is highly active in finding solutions to your issue and others. Some options already exist on your computer. They can be found under your start menu/accessories/accessability.

There are programs that will caption existing DVD or Video. Maybe even some other multimedia. I think streaming video is still underdeveloped.

This link is from a company that has developed captioning software.

This link is from a research paper on disabilities vs. ease of use and what is to be done to overcome them.

Good luck with your search. I hope I have helped in some way.
