i agree effe, cant believe it took 10 years for this to come out

nd4spdbh, i agree wholeheartedly with you as well, but that's the story of my life. i still come across new movies from time to time that are not captioned despite the ada law, or tv shows that are not captioned, much less internet media. oh and voice to text software does NOT work lol. maybe it'll get better later, who knows.
