Make: videos now with transcripts and closed captions

Hey folks, we’ve wanted to do this for a long time and now it’s happening! Transcripts and closed captioning for our videos (YouTube). It will take some time to do all the videos but we’re going to experiment and see how it goes. The first one we did was “MAKE presents: the LED” – if you view it on YouTube you can click the little box in the lower right (CC) and see the captions. For straight up text, visit the video page on MAKE.
