It's a little unclear to me exactly what the problem is. Why don't closed caption machines work well? Once you answer that question, it would be nice to come up with some more ideas about how to solve the issue, besides (or along with) raising awareness. In my opinion, anyone can "raise awareness," so what other unique qualities do you bring to the issue?

If you want to stick with raising awareness for the problem, what do you hope to get out of raising awareness? By raising awareness, what do you think will change?
