Domestic Violence and Abuse
I love the "fastest rapper in the world" bit!
But where's the captioning of the audio track? This video isn't WCAG conformant!
The video is captioned. Click the arrow in the bottom right corner of the player. A button with the letters "CC" (Closed Captioning) will appear. Select it. That's how captioning works on YouTube.
Ah, I'm properly abashed. Many thanks for the explanation.
I had a person ask how I made Sharky talk, asking whether it was a real person through a synthesizer.
I created Sharkey's dialogue by typing out everything I wanted Sharky to say and then getting JAWS screen reader to read it while I recorded the output using another computer to capture the voice. I did this using various settings on JAWS for different speeds and pitches. Then I transferred the recorded files to my music program Cubase, and cut it up to go on the beat.
Fun video! I thought the singer was great (the human one.) Who is he? What else has he done? Reminded me a bit of Chris Daughtry – but that could have been because of the similar hair do.
That was me singing, David MacDonald. Many years ago I was on Broadway in a show and dod the US National Tour of Cats. I blew out my voice and lost my career. That's how I ended up in the disability field 10 years ago. Now I just sing on and off when it's in good shape.
In addition to the singing, the writing, production, and content were really entertaining. I hope you're making a living with your music in and out of the disability field. Only 3,320 views so far!!?? Hopefully this will become one of those viral You Tube videos! I'm bookmarking this page so I can see where it goes.
That was wonderful. The bit about the 'screen reader' asking if it needed to 'slow down for you' made me roar with laughter. I'm not blind, but I use JAWS a lot in my accessibility testing, and I completely understand the feeling. Wonderful idea and great execution!
This is great – Love it! I do a lot of web accessibility training and this would be a great icebreaker.
too bad they didn't use a spell checker – It's the principal (sic) of the thing!
Yeah, I have a corrected version, I'll be uploading soon. One of those embarassing typos… I'll leave this one up though because it's on a lot of the blogs.
Click the little arroow in the bottom right of the video and select cc.
What a great video – fun, educational, and awareness-raising. Great job!
Fantastic. It is a great way to raise awareness. I already adopted this theme in my online courses. Thank you and congratulations for the work and for sharing it!

I found this while reading a page on Web Accessibility… on the European Commission's official website!! https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/web-accessibility
Hey @David, I would like to contribute with the translation of subtitles for Brazilian Portuguese (pt-br), why not enable the video to receive contributions? 🙂
