Computer, I'm Deaf, Media

Zune without closed caption, iPod does
New next product of Zune HD is release. It sounds like excite for everybody. For not deaf or hearing impaired, it’s unfortunately for the billion-dollar-industry like Microsoft doesn’t offer closed caption (CC) on video player.

Why… You can see that Netflix is using Microsoft’s video player as steam video that everybody wonder why we can’t get to see in CC? It won’t hurt if the business would accept to earn our money to boost 10% out of 30 million deaf customers. It could be that they’re too rich and don’t need our money for extra-being-rich.

Currently, iPod lineup is the ONLY media portable player that ever offers CC. Enjoy it when you can. I have quite amount of deaf actual own iPod, iPod Touch and iPhone, they can even enjoy over hundred of movies from iTunes with CC.
