Adding English and Spanish subtitles to the first Tonatiuh video

We just added subtitles in English and in Spanish to the Tonatiuh - Pecha Kucha Night Sevilla 2008 video using the close caption feature offered by YouTube.

As stated in YouTube Help:

“Captions and subtitles make videos accessible to a wider audience by allowing folks who can not otherwise understand the audio track to follow along, especially those who are hard-of-hearing or speak other languages. Captions are in the same language as the video's audio track. Subtitles are in a different language.”

To activate the captions / subtitles option, you just have to click on the button labeled “CC” at the lower right corner of the YouTube player. Further and more detail instructions on how to do it can be found here:

Tonatiuh video channel started on YouTube

We have just started a video channel on YouTube about Tonatiuh. Our plan is to use it to upload videos about Tonatiuh in a regular basis -mostly tutorials to help Tonatiuh users better understand the program, and how to use it.

The first video was just uploaded few days ago. It is an eight minutes static pictures presentation about the rationale for the Tonatiuh software development project; the principles and goals that inspire its open source development, and the program structure, and current status. It is based on a presentation given by me at the Seville's Pecha Kucha Night September 2008.

After this introductory video, others will follow of a more tutorial-like character. If you want to be informed when this videos are available just subscribe to our YouTube channel:
