Producers need to stop thinking of the lower 1/3 as available real
estate. :) The Producers would never put "important video content"
across someone's face so nor should they captions. It is also very
hard on someone's eyes to have captions bouncing around the screen.
Also, the person who requires the captions is typically not in the

Producers move the important content around the captions. :)
