The point is: real time captioning is not faster than listening regardless of your reading speed. It's useful for people you cannot hear properly, but I'd say our efforts are better spend with proper text version of talks published later.


If we want to make DConf more accessible to the hearing impaired, they should be published before or concurrently with the talks.

I am hearing impaired and interested in DConf talks. I can't always listen to the talks when they come out, but would definitely be more interested if they were captioned. And transcripts would be hugely appreciated as well.

I agree that captioning is a good idea. I was just responding to "It's useful for people you cannot hear properly, but I'd say our efforts are better spend with proper text version of talks published later." If we were to release a transcript for the hearing impaired, it should not be *after* the talk is done.
