Re:  Closed captioning for “Last Week Tonight” on YouTube

To whom it may concern:

I have a friend who is deaf and she has been unable to watch Last Week Tonight because of the problems with closed captioning on YouTube. I’m sorry if this email has been sent to you erroneously, but I’m not on Facebook or Twitter, so I don’t know how to communicate with John Oliver. I went to the HBO “site feedback” website, but all I got was a black screen, and I can’t find an email address for YouTube. If you could forward this email to the correct people, I would really appreciate it.

  1. WOW! You did this? That’s your real name ? You know that I left a message to youtube and told them to use subtitles instead of cc. Next thing I knew they added the word subtitle along with cc! It is not subtitled!

  2. I don’t run into the lack of captions option as much anymore, but up until a few years ago it was hell to find captions on anything online. Go you for writing a message to them!
