Let Freedom Ring

MLK Jr.The words of Martin Luther King, Jr. rarely fail to stir my emotions. A website called Readeez adds text to video of MLK's 1963 speech in Washington, D.C.

Watch/listen to speech

I'm not sure whether seeing the words makes me understand it better or distracts me from the stirring rhymns of King's voice.

Because we're so visual anyway I'm afraid the ability to read along trades intellect for emotion, not necessarily a good thing.

What do you think? Is the Readeez version better than the original video (no text)?
