11. Innovations in accessibility - with YouTube

I was recently told about this exciting development which provides a hint at the way ahead! (Thanks Anna.) Basically, YouTube will used speech recognition software to match your transcription of a video to the video itself. So you end up with auto captioning. This means you have a chance to read the text as it is spoken. This may provide a creative way to develop reading and reading comprehension skills in the future, as well as other skills. And then of course you could translate it too!!!
