Might sound kind of strange that I want to kick the week off with an apology, so let me explain…
Whilst out teaching at the Photoshop World Conference in Las Vegas at the end of one of my classes I was approached by a lady who was hard of hearing. She was accompanied by someone signing and through her we had a conversation about what I had covered and it was then that it dawned on me and to be honest I’m kind of ashamed I’d never thought about it until this moment..
How on earth do folks who are hard of hearing cope when it comes to learning Photoshop when attending such functions BUT more so how have I as an Educator failed to think about this when it comes to my own downloadable content and YouTube Channel?!?!?
Once we’ve finished speaking I went through a THATS IT! moment; no more content will be without transcript!
Since being back home I’ve started getting my most popular videos transcribed using my favourite place for this, REV, and placing these transcriptions along with the videos so that they come up as subtitles, and this too will carry on with every new video.
So again, I write this as an apology but also a thank you to Photoshop World for giving me a slap around the face.
•Here you can see my new YouTube Trailer that has also been transcribed, has subtitles, CC etc…
