From the Author: Alfred Kazin once said, "The writer writes in order to teach himself, to understand himself, to satisfy himself; the publishing of his ideas, though it brings gratification, is a curious anticlimax." That quote describes how I feel about writing Inside Captioning better than anything I could have come up with. When you attempt to explain a complex subject clearly and concisely, that is when you suddenly realize how much there is to know about it. Writing this book was a phenomenal learning experience for me, and I hope it will be half as useful to you as a reader. This book is intended as an introduction and in-depth guidebook to closed captioning for anyone from the professional to the curious consumer. Broadcasters, court reporters, captioners, deaf and hard-of-hearing people, and the populace at large should all find something of use herein. I certainly hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
