Dear Shane and company,
My name is Laura Girardo. I am 23 years old, I am deaf, and a huge fan of your channel, but finding myself unable to enjoy your content because of your captioning. I rely on captioning on every video and find that with your recent videos, your "auto-captions" have proven to fail time and time again. Is there any way you could ask your friends, or fans to help you caption your videos? Here are examples of where I cannot hear/enjoy your videos.
In your Tanacon series, i literally could not hear ANYTHING Michael was saying because the autocaptions did not capture it and just stopped. If you see in this screenshots below- you said the line "hired private security at the handle the crowd" which firstly, i know is not what you said, and secondly, the captions stopped working, as you can see in the next screenshot with michael, it was not capturing any dialogue. This was happening all three videos.

Any video you have where there is a group of people all talking at once (usually your squad), i find that I miss a lot of the dialogue, especially Garrett`s because he has a naturally high pitched voice. (Not his fault, but i do miss it). If there is anything you can do to help make your content more accessible, I would be forever grateful.

If you check Colleen’s new video, towards the end she explains how messed up google auto captioning is and why we shouldn’t rely on this. (Link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Em0vnFIWIqo If you follow the footsteps of Pewdiepie or Tyler Oakley, they have opened up their captioning services to the fans who help volunteer their captioning services, because I get it- you guys are busy, so I hope this helps!

If you need more information about captioning or hearing loss or help on how to do this, feel free to email me, and let me know, as I would be honoured to do that. It`s sad because i love every single video you have posted this year and its been amazing to watch you grow, but i hate having to rely on my sister to tell me what I`ve missed or just been out of the loop.
