I think many of use take for granted our ability to hear and don't realize how difficult life could be without this sense. Transcription could at the very least make things a little more enjoyable for those who are hard of hearing or deaf. Furthermore, transcripts are great for folks learning English or people who would rather learn by reading than by listening. Hopefully Upworthy and others will begin to transcribe videos as opposed to use an automated process which can really mangle the words to the point of frustration.
