Seeking Volunteers for Captioning Crochet Videos

I am looking for volunteers to help with subtitling crochet video's in English only. I will be happy to write up a document if you need credit for a course or volunteer work. I am including a link to Universal Subtitles, which is a free subtitle program. I have used the program and it is very easy. It will help keep track of the videos that have captions and the ones that do not. There is a big need for captioning.  The captioned text will provide the ability for the videos to be translated to different languages.  When you subtitle a video, please let me know.





This is the link to the playlists I have created with the video content.
