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:
