Another reason for captioning streaming news videos

I hate to keep harping on the failure of news organizations to apply closed captions for the deaf and hard of hearing to streaming video of news and commentary on their Web sites, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer has just hit upon another reason for captioning:

The paper is going to accept self-made commentary videos from readers for its Letters to the Editor columns. (The announcement is down near the bottom of the piece.)

Or maybe this is simply more ammunition for those who believe literacy is going to hell in a handbasket.
