So A man is suing PH over the lack of closed captions in their videos. As someone who works in the Marketing and Web design industry, this is becoming more and more prevalent. Just a few months ago a blind man won a judgment against Dominos Pizza for ADA compliance. The scary thing is this is something most businesses are not in compliance with and this can easily wrap up a small business and tank them as a result of fending off lawsuits and having to create ADA compliant websites.

I understand we want to create an enjoyable experience and equal the playing field for all persons no matter their disabilities but where does that end?

What does ATS think?

I think this is a slippery slope that could end up costing businesses tens of thousands of dollars creating an ADA site for a market they are not even trying to attract. I'm not saying that is the case for PH. I just don't think every business should be forced to change their website to cater to people who they might not be interested in doing business within the first place. Once again I don't think this is the case for PH but for others, it may be the case. Imagine a company that sells airplanes being forced to create an ADA compliant website for blind people.

Brink and mortar stores are totally different since they need to be ADA compliant in case you hire someone protected under ADA or you get visited. But the Website?

SoOo...

The deaf man is suing PH because he's missing the plot of the video?

Can he honestly prove in a court of law that his viewing experience has been lessened because of the lack of CC?

He is somehow missing the finer nuances of a clip from Debby Does Everyone?

I just....

If a couple thousand deaf people join him in that lawsuit.

Would that make it a orgy action lawsuit ?

Could you imagine the captions for most porn?
I’d rather make it up in my head then read those transcripts

Could you call any lawsuit against PH a "class" action lawsuit...?

Seriously!! They don't make these videos for the awesome dialogue. Maybe he wants to know why she was a bad girl instead of just seeing her get railed.

Can you imagine the people that have to go through and type out all these videos? Or at least screen them?

*80's techno music*

*Gurgling sounds*

Woman: Oh yeah I love that!

*swallowing sounds*

*ass smacking sounds*

*flopping sounds*

These are the types of things they are missing out on.

Can we all agree on Kavanaugh?

Wouldn't reading the captions take away from the experience?

Son has a hearing disorder, so we have closed captioning turned on. Having had a lot of experience now with it, I don't want to even begin to try to imagine captioning for a porno, but my mind is going there anyhow. They don't just do words, but you get music description and sound effects, sometimes they'll add emotional description to the words ...

Do you watch YouTube captioning? Tsunamis become salamis ... that's the relative quality he could expect too.

Yeah Tsunamis and Salamis was okay. Not as good as Naughty Taxidermists volume 8 though.

Seriously this thread is on thin ice


The auto-generated captioning on YouTube is awful and I'm not sure why google hasn't taken it down due to how impractical it is for the hearing impaired and Deaf community. It's good for the comical blunders though.
