      "If you can't watch a video and listen to simple instructions, you're unlikely to achieve anything in business. Give up now." ...Wow!

haha so true!
Who do I have the pleasure of chatting with?

      Yes? The deaf and hard of hearing community is at a distinct disadvantage in the business world.

I can imagine that this could be true, Petey... are you part of that community yourself or simply have a heart to help that community?

      The video isn't even captioned.

I believe that I have a version with a transcript... let me look. Most everything we have has a full transcript, despite not being cc

      I am involved in the disabled community in general, but this one smacks a bit for me in an immediate sense because I am at a computer without a sound card in it.

Here is the one with a full transcript.
What does a sound card do?

      A sound card plays audio.

Ohhh gotcha! I read that message wrong - I thought you said it DID have a sound card... now I understand

      I just wanted to relay a message of "Yikes!" as concerns your website and video.

I do appreciate you bringing this to our attention - truly
I will pass along the great need for closed captioning

      I even clicked the ad because I largely agree with the blurb message, so.

I understand, and glad you chatted in today. Is there anything else that I can help with?

      No, just that.

I hope you have a great day today, Petey! Feel free to open a new chat any time :)

I freaking hate "video help" on general principle. It forces me to go at the pace chosen by the presenter, which is usually geared to the slowest recipient they can imagine. It makes me itch.

Give me written material I can scan and pick out what I need any day.
