I'm very interested in the subject of this video but I cannot follow it because I am deaf. The sound I can hear has quite an echo which makes it difficult to follow. I found how to switch subtitles on but these are unintelligible too! I think they must be auto generated and the software was having as much trouble understanding as I was.

Please could you consider putting 'proper' subtitles on future videos. It's reckoned that 1 in 6 people have some kind of hearing loss so a large proportion of your potential audience will be excluded without proper captions.

Best regards,

Very helpful, David. Thank you. Just one small thing - you use a quote which I beleive are actually John Wesley's words, not his brother! For more on John Wesley's preaching on the use of money, you can go to: Hope this is helpful. God bless, Tony

He who gives to the poor lends to the Lord.

investing our savings in honourable things is a great way of combining the responsibilities of giving and saving. Community shares are increasingly being offered as a way of funding various projects. These typically give a return to the investor but in the meantime allow a project to move forward for the benefit of the community or wider society.

Thank you, David, for helpfully balanced Biblical comments.
Do we need the background music "jingle"?? That may be why Martyn had difficulty with the subtitles. I find background music (usually mildly) irritating!

I agree with John Fairbairn on both points - please omit the background noise.It adds nothing and is both irritating and distracting.

Just to add to the other people's comments about the background music - I also found it hard to concentrate on the speech over the noise. For a factual video where people want information (it's not like an advert trying to tug at people's heartstrings), could it please just be the speech and omit the music? Thanks.
