Time to Caption This

April 16, 2012 Comments Off

Time to change the order here, there, and many places!

 

Dictionary says, for “caption” — (from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/caption)

a : the heading especially of an article or document

b : the explanatory comment or designation accompanying a pictorial illustration

c : a motion-picture subtitle

CCAC suggests, thinking with you all here:

Caption:

a. text instead of sound, words, or any audio – the written or produced text for reading instead of “hearing”

b. realtime speech to text translation (some prefer transcription, interpretation, transformation) so that millions who need text to “hear” conversations and more are included

c. captioning and subtitles on media, from television to internet, in movies and anyplace any media is shown; not only visually (any sound presentations too)

d. oh yes – a line under a cartoon or photo

e. a bubble in a cartoon that has text for the words

f. heading of an article? really?
