  • Hi, welcome.

  • As you can see,

  • now you can hear me,

  • and now I want to make my little community,

  • here on YouTube, more inclusive,

  • and one of the ways I have decided

  • to do that in the new year

  • is by closed captioning every single one of my videos.

  • I went all the way back.

  • I closed captioned every single one

  • on my main channel, on my second YouTube channel,

  • and, so, if you want to consume my stuff you can,

  • whether you are able to from the start,

  • whether you've always been able to,

  • or now if you are deaf, or hard of hearing,

  • or if you're learning English,

  • or if you just like to read videos instead of hear videos,

  • now it is an option for you,

  • and I was considering doing this for a while now,

  • but then I started to see some people suggest it

  • and tried to encourage me to do it.

  • I saw a video from a YouTuber named Rikki Poynter

  • who talked about the importance of it,

  • and why she thinks it's important for every YouTuber to do

  • and how you can get about doing it,

  • whether it's doing it manually,

  • which is super easy,

  • or, if you have resources,

  • you can send it to an outside source or company

  • that'll do it for you,

  • and then send you a transcript,

  • and then you just upload it to the video.

  • It's a really easy thing to do,

  • and I was actually surprised at how easy

  • it was to close caption my videos,

  • and the fact that now millions and millions and millions

  • more people can actually enjoy my content is a cool thing

  • and I don't ever want this to feel like a place

  • where only certain people can come to

  • and be a part of this community,

  • so that was why it was really important for me,

  • and I guess the next step

  • is encouraging other YouTubers to do it,

  • so if you are a YouTuber,

  • and you are watching,

  • and you want to spread the love to a whole new community

  • that just wants to be able to enjoy the content

  • that a lot of other people get to enjoy,

  • but they may not have the privilege to.

  • All of the resources that I am talking about

  • for closed captioning your videos

  • are going to be below,

  • and this is not just for YouTubers,

  • there is something that I want to request of you guys.

  • You guys are all over the world,

  • and I know that you guys speak

  • just about every language in the world,

  • so I have a challenge.

  • If you would like to caption

  • any of my videos in your language,

  • and open the accessibility to your community,

  • I would be so grateful,

  • so I have opted into a program

  • that let's you guys work as a community

  • to spread the love

  • and to help me caption my videos,

  • so that they are available for your languages,

  • so if you'd like to be a part of that,

  • if you speak anything other than English,

  • the description is going to have all of the details.

  • I would love it if you got involved.

  • It's okay if you can't,

  • but I think this is a cool thing

  • that we can do together as a community

  • to open up this little thing that we've got going on.

  • I just want everyone to be able to enjoy YouTube

  • the way I enjoy YouTube,

  • and for that to happen,

  • it takes team work.

  • Number one: if you're a YouTuber, close caption your videos.

  • The stuff is in the description.

  • Number two: if you are a viewer,

  • encourage other YouTubers to do the same

  • by closed captioning their videos,

  • or, if you are a viewer,

  • and you speak another language,

  • and you want to translate to your language,

  • again, all this stuff is going to be in the description,

  • but that's all this video is.

  • I just wanted to make an announcement

  • that all of my stuff is closed captioned now,

  • and to encourage YouTubers to do the same,

  • and to encourage viewers to help contribute

  • to helping me make my stuff available for every language,

  • but, yeah, that's all I have for you guys today.

  • I hope you have a fabulous life.

  • I hope that you find ways to include other people

  • from other perspectives into your own life.

  • I think a big thing is making sure that

  • accessibility is on the forefront of your mind

  • because if you are, you know, able to hear,

  • or if you're able to speak,

  • or if you can see, or if you can walk,

  • or you can do all these things

  • that not everybody is necessarily able to do,

  • then it's not something you think about,

  • so I just want you to be conscious of all the ways

  • that you're privileged with your own body,

  • and to make sure that you include others

  • who may not have the same privileges.

  • That's all.

  • That's really, I mean, that's just it.

  • I hope that you enjoyed this video.

  • If you liked this video,

  • be sure to give this video a thumbs up,

  • and let me know other ways

  • that I can be more inclusive on this channel,

  • because I want to include people

  • and I want people to know that this is a space for everyone,

  • but, yes, that is all I have for you guys today,

  • if you want to see my latest video, click right there.

  • If you would like to hear my latest podcast,

  • click right there,

  • and if you'd like to join this little family,

  • all you've got to do is click right there

  • to get something my District Lines store.

  • You can get, like, a shirt, or a poster,

  • or, like, an iPhone case, or whatever you want,

  • just send me a picture of you holding it up

  • and being cute in it,

  • and then you might be my person of the week very soon.

  • All you got to do is tweet it to me,

  • and then, also, if you want to join this little community,

  • all you got to do is subscribe.

  • I make new videos all the time.

  • I hope that you guys can be a part of this family,

  • and, yeah, I love you,

  • Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, everything.

  • Hit me up,

  • and, yeah, I love you.

  • I will see you guys soon,

  • and, yeah, okay, bye, later.

  • I know this video is not informative about me,

  • or what I'm doing in my life,

  • or, you know, funny, or a Q and A,

  • or a P.O Box video, or an adventure video or an interview,

  • or a collab, or anything,

  • but I feel like it's important,

  • so if you think it's important too,

  • give it a thumbs up and let your favorite YouTubers know.

  • okay, that's all, bye.
