This is something I find "in the wild" - it is fairly often that the captions
go too fast for me to read.

One important question is what solutions might be available. In some cases,
expanding the amount of space for captions could be helpful (this is easy in
a SMIL-based system), but generally this is unlikely to help. For
pre-scripted content, the speed can be adjusted. For live content, it is more
