Fishing for Movies with Captionfish
You may have seen Fomdi, a web site that helps you locate captioned movies (either open caption or rear window) by zip code and how far the theaters are from your home. Fomdi has a Google search-like interface. It provides a great service, but it doesn’t catch every movie. Today, it shows only one captioned movie within 40 miles of me.
CaptionFish does the same except it detects your location and has a sleek 2.0 web interface. Captionfish shows six captioned movies within 30 miles of me. I know this list is more accurate because I checked with the theaters’ web sites and newspaper.
Nonetheless, Captionfish goes the extra mile and provides captioned movie trailers! So if you find a movie of interest, you can watch its trailer right there if it’s available (not all movies have a captioned trailer). If you want to see what movies will be available tomorrow or for the next seven days, be sure to switch to the “7 Day” tab as I almost missed it. It also has a mobile version of the set as the next image shows a screen shot from a BlackBerry Curve.
Great interface, high usability and valuable features make CaptionFish worthy becoming a part of the entertainment toolbox for those who rely on captions.
