"A 'biblical' tome for captioning--this book will be referenced by those in the captioning industry in the years to come. The industry owes it to Gary Robson. Honestly, without Gary, there is very little out there documenting the development of captioning, from both a historical and technical point of view." Philip W. Braven, ex-President of the National Captioning Institute and former Chairman of the Gallaudet University Board of Trustees
*An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.
