No Captions for Commercials??

Companies spend millions of dollars creating and airing commercials. With 10% of the population being Deaf/HoH, why in the world would they not spend a tiny bit more money adding captions? Do they think that we don't shop in their stores, buy their products, etc? It's very disconcerting sometimes how we are silently ignored as a minority group.

Wow! 10%?? I didn't know it was that high. I usually record all my programs and zip through commercials anyway. No point watching them since most aren't captioned. Thanks for your comment on my blog.

It is so annoying to watch commercials that are not captioned and wonder what they are saying. It is enough to live this way, but to be reminded through a commercial that you are deaf/HOH. It's just another thing I have to live with.
