Please add closed captions and/or transcription to (non-live) videos

Support has just told me CC/transcribed LiveEdu videos are not available for the deaf, and they suggested I add it to the roadmap.

I’m profoundly deaf and I’m learning to code, and I’m not the only one. I feel accessibility is really important, yet it’s often overlooked. It’s not just deaf people who need CC or transcription; hard of hearing people or people who don’t understand heavy/unfamiliar accents often need it too.

I understand the technical difficulty in adding CC or transcription to live streaming content. But for videos that aren’t live, it’s not a technical issue, so it would be awesome if LiveEdu could make their service more accessible in this way.

Thanks.
