  1. I hate to be a PITA, but … transcript???? I am a bit of a fogy. I do not like to be made to watch things, or be left out. Text … text is the thing.

    Please pretend that I post this comment every time one of you puts up an audio or video bit.


  2. NCG, I, too, prefer text. I’m often reading in environments that make audio and video inconvenient. I frequently end up skipping the video offerings.

    Still, I know there are people whose preferences are the opposite of mine.

    It rather fascinates me that you feel justified in demanding that someone take the time to create a transcript for you. It seems to me very like the person who is offered a piece of white cake by a generous host only to reject it because he doesn’t like white cake and then follows with a demand for a piece of chocolate cake instead. I suspect you would realize in that circumstance that the appropriate thing to do would be to graciously decline the offer of the thing you don’t like, even though you might feel left out when those around you are all eating cake.

    Why does this seem different to you?
