How many do you expect to be closed captioned? Out of 100 valid hits, I expect about 0.5 of them to have a potential for the CC.

This came up at the top of my list when I entered P Exam .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEKp3wzL5oU

This came out second.

If you estimate is correct, this was a 1 in 40000 outcome.

To be sure . . . there are plenty of videos on uToob that cover Exam P material. The question was, "How many of them are closed captioned for the hearing impaired?"

Neither of the two links are CC'd.

To put it another way, watch those videos with the sound muted and see how helpful they might be. (They could be, but YMMV.)

How many does OP need? One?

Seems like there's a decent exam P question in here, Mr Herbert.

If P(CC) = 0.5% (iid) what's the expected number of videos OP would need to check out to find one that has CC?
A. Fewer than 20
B. At least 20 but fewer than 50
C. At least 50 but fewer than 100
D. At least 100 but fewer than 200
E. At least 200

Out of curiosity why does it need to be a close captioned video as opposed to simply a textbook study manual like Actex of ASM?

It appears that the OP has the manual, but it doesn't show the "live" development of writing out a problem with the verbal explanation (something you often get with the videos).
