You bet I'm interested -- the only problem is just how much time I can allocate to it. I seem to be a bit minus on spare time these days.
I have done captioning for movies, as I said, and it is time consuming. I've gotten better at it but even so, I would guess that it would take me between 40 and 100 hours for a 90 minute movie -- depending upon how much dialog there was. It varies so much.
I started doing that when I found that there quite a few movies I really loved that had no captioning available at all. My top favorite move, A New Leaf (Elaine May & Walter Mathau) won't ever come into legitamate DVD cause May hates the film -- so I did it myself.
Looking at some of the videos here, I was impressed with the amount of effort and generally high quality. The How-To videos should be fairly easy to do and in fact, I really think nothing more than a transcript of what's said, without timing info, would be more than adequate. For example, a lot of the knot tying would be quick and easy to do. Same with some
of the alcohol stove making. There seems to be a lot of time where the director talks (options? sticking points? Humor-- which I knew) and the video itself is simply showing something being held or slowly turned for the camera.
At this point, I really, really need to find out about formats and streams related to YouTube. That's the biggest stumbling block I can see right now.
Thanks, btw. Now I know somebody else who's deaf.
