Student Letters To President Obama with Close Captions On YouTube

5th grade students read their letters to President Obama.

Last week, I discovered that YouTube now allows Close Captions to be added to videos that can be translated into twenty-plus languages. Click on the small triangle on the lower right corner of the video player to see the close caption on this video, Very Cool!

To create the close captions, I used Subtitle Workshop, a Windows freeware subtitle editing tool. Once I got over the learning curve, it is pretty easy to use. The above short screencast was a big help.
