Alex Davis : “As a deaf person I rely on captions and you often see some very weird mistakes. Auto captions are the bane of my life, they can be very funny with mis hearing words but also means I miss out on what is being said. I’m ‘lucky’ that I used to be hearing, so know what words sounds like so can say the wrong sentence/ word in my head and try and work out what it was meant to say. Those who are deaf from birth can’t. I wish more video content creators would add human written captions to their videos. Doesn’t just help those who can’t hear, but also those watching in public with no headphones and those who speak that language as a second language.”
