  1. re: captions. It’s fascinating to me how many people I know with no hearing issues become hooked on having captions on after spending some time with me. And the unintended consequence of having captions is that the text is more readily indexed and searchable…and not just by search engines! I recently worked on a project where I downloaded and searched the captions for the tv series _The Wire_ for how some specific words were used…that couldn’t happen without subtitles/captions. Linguists are having a field day with some of those texts!
