The transcripts needed for captioning are not a script…it is exactly what was really spoken…so that deaf people or others reading the captions can know what was said, at the exact timed minute it was spoken -

Perhaps the editing and captioning is something I could get a group of middle school students to work on as a service learning project?  I will also try to involve other teachers with ASL students and Deaf and Hard of Hearing students to join us.  Contact me with details and I will work on grants and donations to make this happen over this school year!
