I’ve written a few times before about Universal Subtitles, a great web service that facilitates the crowdsourcing of captions for online videos. Earlier this summer they announced a new initiative to focus the crowd‘s efforts on specific videos: “We’re looking for volunteers to caption and translate videos on our volunteer team page. We’ve curated some fascinating videos from non-profit and educational partners that deserve a global audience. Even if you don’t speak multiple languages you can still help make the video more accessible by creating captions.”
