I have been told that somebody recently did do a live captioned webcast,
using realtext and a program that built the text files on the fly - which wsa
custom-hacked for the purpose. I am hoping the program will be made
available, but I don't imagine it has the feel of a production release, if it
is available.

But congratulations for putting the captioned version online. I look forward
to reading it.

  The U.S. Mint's webcast at the White House for the unveiling of the
  new dollar coin design is now available in a close-captioned format.  No one has done this live because technology is simply not there yet.  
  We have provided a text transcript of the event as well as a close-captioned video for people who are hearing impaired, please see  http://webevents.broadcast.com/usmint/dollarcoin/.
  Does anyone know of any government office that has done this?  If you do, please let me know.
