I would like to know the results of this question because we have
encountered similar problems. As you know, the old BBC Shakespeare series
is not closed captioned. Are you suggesting that anyone who owns this (or
any other) series can hire someone to close caption it?

Subject: Closed captioning and copyright

Our office for disabled student services is interested in adding closed
captioning to our titles that do not already have it. Someone in that office
cited <> as a potential source for
getting this service done. I have four questions 1) has anyone used this
company to add closed captioning to their programs; 2) if so, is this
company reputable, does it do good work, etc.; 3) is there an exemption from
getting written permission or paying a license for duplicating a copyrighted
program for this purpose (I know of none); and 4) are there better or more
economical companies that do this or other methods of adaptive techniques
that are equally effective? Any comments will be welcome.

Thanks in advance,
