By adding closed captions to your videos......
Yes, the deaf and hard of hearing also enjoy political humor via online media-so why not include us in on the laugh and provide captioning like other online media pioneers (ie TED videos). So few internet videos include captioning and while major networks are legally required to have them, that leaves those of us who are challenged aurally looking for more progressive/alternative entertainment left out.

Imagine my frustration when I receive the Chevron video a million times via Facebook, with messages from friends reading
"you've got to watch this", "a must see", etc. Then go to watch it and find that I just can't make out the dialogue, because unfortunately, I was born missing quite a few of my high frequency sounds.

Set a trend-start captioning your videos.....
thanks in advance,

    Hi Fern, captioning our videos is something that is definitely on our list of things we want to do. I don't know when the resources and priorities will make it a reality, but the issue is definitely on our radar, Thanks for writing.
