    I absolutely LOVE the video! All of the students did a great job, especially the young girl who introduces the video. As a parent of a hard of hearing girl who is primarily oral, but who has also taken sign language classes, I found myself looking at the bottom of the screen for the captions as I do on the television at home. Why isn’t the video captioned?

    There are captions. If you can’t see them embedded here, watch the video directly at YouTube and you should be able to toggle them on and off.
