The Missouri School for the Deaf (MSD) has an extensive library of videotapes and DVDs available for loan through its Captioned Media Program (CMP). This is a free loan service much like your local library. The difference is that all CMP materials are captioned (both videotapes and DVDs).

There are more than 4,000 titles to choose from. Orders are accepted year-round. Videos range from Kindergarten level through adult ages.
These videos include educational titles, self-help videos, classic movies, as well as special interest and theatrical titles. Many of the educational titles also include a lesson guide.

The CMP is funded by the U. S. Department of Education for selecting, captioning, and distributing captioned media materials. These materials are open captioned (no special equipment necessary - just put it in the VCR/DVD player and press play and the captions are embedded in the tape)
and loaned free of charge.

To use this service, the only thing you need to do is request an account number. Remember, it is a free loan service using the postal service to get materials to you. MSD pays the postage and includes a pre-paid return label. If you have questions about applications or ordering, please contact us.
