Universal Subtitling

hi folks :) 
i want there to be more subtitles for film and video, not less. Subtitling is one way for more folks to access video & film. It certainly helps me understand things better, it makes it possible for others to participate in an otherwise *entirely* alienating & inaccessible event. And while subtitling is not the be-all end-all, but one piece of the puzzle, i think the bulk of us are looking towards greater inclusivity, wider community nets, empowerment, involvement, liberation, yes? Yes. And every bit helps.
A friend recently turned me on to this website called Universal Subtitles, where you can take pretty well any video and subtitle it in many languages. This is yet another fabulous tool for increasing accessibility and community!!
