Captioned Videos

I am disappointed not many videos have captions.  I am deaf and love to exercise.  We have many deaf, hard-of-hearing, and ESL (English as 2nd Language) viewers who need captions so we are able to follow instructors.  I have a library of fitness videos.  I have about 5 videos with the captions out of 20 videos.  I love FIRM, Kathy Smith, and Michelle Dozois' videos because some of them are captioned but I wish there are more.  Please consider to add captions before they release new videos.  Thanks.

    That's a shame!! I am hard of hearing - my hearing aid bothers me so I tend to take it off and turn the volume way up - my poor neightbors.  You would think that the producers would think about that.

    LOL ... hey, I'm deaf too, 90% !!!! and I NEVER wear my hearing aids ugh I HATE them  .. I have a set of infrared headphones and I cannot stress how marvelous they are !! I think I have only two dvds out of 60 that are captioned, I try every one of them when I first get them but no they're never captioned !! oh well .. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my infrared headphones they're really worth investing in .. I gather all the front of my hair up and put that part only in a hair tie and that keeps the headphones in place, even when I lie down ..   :-)

    Wow, you guys are reading my mind.  I would going to send a request for captions.  I noticed Jilian Micheals {30 Shred}7963^ has captions but all of my other ones doesn't.  I have 60% hearing loss but I wear my hearing aids.  I would be helpful to read caption to get the full details on the workouts.  Thanks !!!!

    Maybe someone should start a list of workouts that are captioned?  I can start:
    I'm currently doing a Slim Series rotation and these are all captioned.
    We could also request that Collage include that in their descriptions.

    It would be very nice if all exercise videos were close-captioned.  We will be sure to forward your request to the manufacturers.

    What a wonderful idea! I am in my early 30s and recently lost most of my hearing in my right ear. It's possible I could lose it in my other ear and I HATE my hearing aid too. I only use it when I have no choice and have never tried to exercise with it in. I think it would make me anxious about falling out. Anyway, I like captions for most tv programs and it would be nice if videos were made this way too! no way should ppl with hearing loss lose some of the fun in exercising or the ability to exercise at all!

    I have been wondering about that, too. I am deaf and I collect Prevention DVDs by Chris Freytag. I was sooo disappointed that it didn't have captions. Gunner Peterson DVDs, Denise Austin DVDs and {Work Out One to One Training with Jackie}7828^ DVD have captions but I wish that Prevention DVDs have captions because I have all of these dvds with Chris Freytag.  I would love to know what they are saying and what important we need to know from them. Last year I lost 30 lbs and I didn't understand why my pooch didn't go away so just last 2 months, I found more DVDS that have captions and I watched carefully what they said. I learned more how to do with my tummy and finally I lost inches and inches on my pooch from c-sections 3 times. I am going to work with Kettlebells soon and I pray that DVDs for Kettlebells have captions. It would be wonderful.

    I just did 10 minute solution {sculpt, tone & reshape}9351^, and noticed that it does have captions on it, for those who are interested.  Maybe the other 10 minute solution tapes have captions, too.

    I am deaf, too.  10 Min. Solution, Densie Austin, The Biggest Loser, Dance Off The Inches, Crunch,  and Tae Bo DVDs have closed captions.  I always want to order "The Firm" DVDs for years but  they are not available for closed captions.  Last Spring  I received Billy Blanks's {T3 DVDs}9340^ but I was dispointed that T3 DVD did not have closed captions.   I have tons of BIlly Blanks's Tae Bo DVDs.  Now I have ordered more DVDs from beachbody.com because they always have closed captions.
