It’s not just the captions that are used by people beyond the community that they were designed to help (Passage Notes, November 16). As an audio description, I recently met several people who broadcast a TV show or movie and then access the audio description service, allowing them to listen while biking, running or ironing.

Thank you for reintroducing “Other Lives” in the obituary pages of the Saturday print edition (Journal of November 20). It is interesting to see, and important to record, the extraordinary contributions to our lives made by “ordinary” people.
