I have been very appreciative of some of the communities on SE. In particular, Workplace and StackOverflow.

I would like to start a community for closed captioning. Specifically for the technology behind the creation, distribution, and use of captioning in both television broadcasting and multi-media platforms.

I am recognized as somewhat of an authority in the area, and would like to use the SE platform to begin this.

Granted the audience is somewhat small by SE standards, but I feel it would be a valuable addition to the SE communities and most certainly would be valuable for Closed Captioning producers.

I know there is a video SE site, but I believe closed captioning is a distinct enough subject that it should be separate, especially given that most realtime closed captioners come from court reporting, and not video production.

How/Who/When should I talk to about starting this community?
