Deaf MTV and Open Captions Project

Thanks to BrownEyedGirl for bringing my attention to Deaf Performing Artists Network (DPAN), which presents music-style videos with sub-titles, ASL or both. There’s more ASL than there are captions. I watched “Where’d You Go” and it is well done and the music rocks. Unfortunately, only bits and pieces are captioned and I try to fill the gaps by reading the signers’ lips.
Ke5ter points to the Open Captions Project:

Open Captions allows anyone to caption online video. With free simple tools to caption videos from a web browser everyone benefits. Whether it is their own work or a favorite video from a friend online, as captions are added the Internet becomes more accessible.
