Closed Captioning in Reverse

Closed Captioning in Reverse

A broken VCR finds some audio (would be interesting to repeat this). The Simpsons as read by WGBH. WFMU’s Station Manager Ken discovers an extra audio track on the Simpsons that describes the visuals for blind people. He even provides a 21 MB, 23 minute MP3 of a recent episode that is surprisingly listenable…Are podcasts of TV show audio tracks next? Will we be listening to Family Guy and the Daily Show during our commutes? [via | via] Link.

    I was watching CSI once and had accidentally left the SAP on (I had been messing about with it earlier). All of a sudden this guy starting describing the scene. It was creepy. What was really interesting, though, was that he would point out clues that you would otherwise not have noticed, or would regard as unimportant.
