Treehouse Closed Captioning

Speaking of web accessibility, is there a way to contribute to the closed captioning on Treehouse courses?

I almost always keep closed captioning on because I find it easier to pay attention when I read along. It also helps to ensure I'm not missing anything that was said too quickly or unintelligibly.
