Getting Started (Level 1) - Scripts Completed - A Big Thank You
Back in October (2013) I came across a new member of Wealthy Affiliate who was frustrated because they couldn't access any of the videos on the Level 1 course because they were Deaf.
Although there's a lot of information accompanying the video they still couldn't get what was going on without captions or a script. and they felt excluded. There was nothing I could say to them but I made the decision to start transcribing the videos and typing up the Level 1 scripts.
A big thank you
When I said I was going to do it - I had no idea what a huge task it was. Thankfully some great members of WA offered to help and a big thank you should go to Jean (@autumn56) Rick (@Rick Jantz) and Thomas (@ThomasPaul). I couldn't have done it without them.
Now you've probably noticed the flaw in my plan. We have the Getting Started Course done - but what about all the others? Well Jean has made a start on the Bootcamp Phase 1. I'm sure she would welcome some help if anyone wanted to volunteer to transcribe one of the videos.
Scripts for anyone
Of course it's not just people who are Deaf or have a hearing impediment that want video scripts. Some people don't enjoy video at all. However, you will find there are no pictures accompanying the scripts because they were done with the idea that someone could watch the video and look back at the script.
So if people are asking for the scripts - please point them here.
Need further information?
And if you produce your own videos please think of offering a script or adding captions. There's benefits all round to doing so. You can find out more here
Thanks. :) Beverley
