[games_access] Ubisoft and Game Accessibility, Subtitle

Either way, I'm still very happy they've committed to subtitles for
the dialog. Once you take that step and create technology for
subtitling, it's not hard to make the leap to closed captioning.

I'd like Mark to ask how this came about, what motivates them to make
this commitment? Also, let them know I am willing to share my
experience with CC and that I am creating a CC template to share with
developers that has common sounds captioned and translated into other
languages.
