I am hard of hearing and it would be helpful to have notations on videos about their level of accessibility. For example, if they include speech, is it captioned? Are there captions, but only auto generated? Does the speech contain information necessary to watch the video? Does it add some other value (e.g. humor)? Is it music only? Ambient noise? This would also be useful for people who cannot listen to the video because they are at work or school because then they know whether or not to bother watching it now, or save it for later. Remember: almost all of us are going to become hard of hearing if we live long enough. [more inside]
I want to use a song from Music.Mefi, but the creator (Vicarious) doesn't have an e-mail!!! Is there any way to contact said creator, or maybe the musicians could add a creative commons tag so others could use their work, and attribute appropriately? I wanted to use the song in a video that I'm making.
