Re: FW: You Tube video

I would vote for one video, not two. One narrator can read the title cards
and quotes from others, such as Maya Angelou. If the EEOC has the phone
numbers of the people in the portraits, they could record audio of the
people holding the signs. They could also perhaps lower the volume of the
music a tad if it competed too much with the vocals.

YouDescribe is another option. http://youdescribe.org/search.php
