In the spring of 2012, I stopped updating this site and put all of my energy into writing the book that this site made possible. Reading Sounds: Closed-Captioned Media and Popular Culture grew directly out of the blog posts on this site.

On the eve of the book’s release in paperback and ebook versions , I want to invite visitors to this site to check out the supplemental website for the book at includes over 500 video clips and a number of images and tables from the book. The website also includes a link to purchasing the book at a special 25% discount, as well as new blog posts, including a post on artful subtitles in Night Watch.

While I plan to leave the Accessible Rhetoric site up for now, I won’t be updating it. Instead, I’ll be turning my attention to Reading Sounds (both book and website). I hope to see you over there!
