    Our tutor introduced us students to WordPress to upload our University assessments some years back. I will forever be grateful to her for doing so.
    It’s also encouraging to learn that WordPress moves with the times with its many expansions and now, with introducing and encouraging followers to launching their own YouTube sites. Bravo WordPress!

    If your goal is to democratize publishing and ecommerce one website at a time, you would have added captions to your video.

    Not relied on autocaptions, which are one long sentence with no punctuation and often contain errors.

    Without captions, people who are:

    1. Deaf or hard of hearing
    2. Speak another language
    3. Comprehend written word better than spoken word
    4. Work in quiet/noisy environments

    Can’t consume your content.

    With autocaptions, you’ve created barriers to a large number of your audience.

    And your prospective audience.

    Given all your videos are scripted, it’s an extra 2 minutes for you to upload the script to YouTube and have YouTube synchronize the captions to the spoken word.

    For over 7 years, I’ve asked WordPress dot com to add captions to the videos you publish.

    Yet, you’ve never acted to do that.

    Captioned videos democratize publishing and ecommerce for everyone, which is the mission you state at the beginning of your video.

    Again I ask, why are you creating barriers for people with disabilities as well as others who can’t consume your video content?

      Hi Deborah,

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Accessibility and inclusivity are very important to us as a team, a company, and definitely as a community. I know that you’ve been in touch with our support team on Twitter about this issue, and we understand the frustration and truly appreciate the feedback.

      To mirror what our support team responded with on Twitter: all videos under the channel now have non-auto English captions. Going forward, we will be releasing content with this revised approach to proper captioning.

      Again, thank you for voicing the concern and getting this feedback to us! We’re committed to learning and growing, in order to best support our WordPress.com community.
