VERY HAPPY, delighted, and thankful to so many all over the place, CCAC members and many others, for joining the CCAC captioning advocacy campaign during the past few days! Today we see THE NEW YORK TIMES acknowledges our efforts, first this way, publicly: THANK YOU NEW YORK TIMES.

Of interest related to this news:
March 30, 2015: CCAC volunteers have now captioned 16 videos – they offer caption files to NYTimes! yet we don’t know if NYTimes know this or if they will reply about it. See https://groups.diigo.com/group/multimedia_accessibility/content/tag/NYT-video-volunteer-captioned to have access needed with quality CC – thanks to all doing this.
http://amara.org/en/teams/captions-requested/ is one place to find NYT videos being captioned by 2 CCAC members and anyone can help there.
http://publiceditor.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/03/24/perfectly-reasonable-questions-closed-captions-on-times-videos/?comments#permid=14504521:14512320 is a place for everyone to say thank you to the NYT and also keep encouraging them to use Quality CC as soon as possible! only one so far on their own YT channel online.
