Closed captioning is enabled in calls I have set up. It has to be turned 
on in a given call by the host (me, unless I find a way to designate 
someone else). Once enabled, we can assign someone in the call to enter 
captions, or enable a third party service. In the first case I do not 
know if participant-entered captions would be more meaningful than the 
IRC scribing we already do. For third party services, I do not know if 
W3C has contracts with existing services nor what the costs would be. 
W3C would do something about that if needed to support accessibility of 
a given call. I think the organization would be less likely to take on 
those costs for language comprehension support (unless clearly 
accessibility related), though if there is sufficient demand it's 
certainly something to consider. Michael
