This is a personal project, and one that I am using as a submission for University as a research project.
I fully intend however to make this a real thing, or product as some might call it.

I'm not a coder, programmer or app dev. If you know someone who might be able to help in this respect, show them my video [below] and see what they think about putting a pennyworth in. I'm going to take this to Kickstarter eventually.

I wish to tap into your collective knowledge and find the best information out there on type that is designed to be any of the following:

> Read quickly
> Be easy to read (*not the same as read quickly*)
> Is designed to work on/optimized for computer displays
> Is designed to work on/optimized for Smartphone/Mobile/Smaller displays
> Closed Caption typefaces- what are they and how were they developed?
> Colour and text, and how this relates to reading speed and ledgibilty
> Type in motion

I'm thinking of a new project and need to start addressing these key points.
To explain my concept, I've (a while ago) put a video together that hopefully outlines what I want to create.
That video is here: http://youtu.be/KuskQGKcaAs?hd=1
[it's the first section really, the second is more of a "why this is needed"]

If anyone is interested in creating this with me (online/digi-communication) then PM me or reply below.

That "any" is what's killing this.

Radio captioning for the deaf isn't a new idea. Have you researched previous efforts?

Regarding choice of fonts and so forth, these are important decisions but I think they'd come far later in the project, after you'd successfully created the necessary technology.

With today's path towards internet/computer/tv integrarion, it seems to me that your technology could also be applied to closed captioning, which today is technically and visually in the dark ages (here in the US, anyway).
