From Deaf news – CAPTIONING AND CART in health care is a major need also.
Anyone interested in asking for it? Need it? Want to advocate with CCAC for it?
See this article about ASL. Why not CART too?

1. WEDU in Florida is getting the message – caption those videos please. Thanks to BC in Sarasota.

And from MG:
2. Car dealer waiting room tv told to turn on cc – why not? :-)
3. Love this one: In doctor’s office – tv running documentaries of several conditions – no capti – asked for them and they said “absolutely” – good!
4. A big steakhouse in Miami – several tv’s on – asked waiter for the captions and they went ahead and set them up; said they never thought of it.
5. Wrote to new candidate for mayor in one town – he loved the idea and wishes to discuss this further; asked him to caption commission meetings and city channel also. So important for good government!
6. Blockbusters and FCC – filed a formal complaint with the FCC online because a 2010 release movie did not have closed captions. FCC answered that DVDS are not included under the law. Pays to complain!

Kudos to all who ask for and encourage inclusion of captioning for so many people.
We want your examples too! Join the CCAC on the website, then you can tell us more in the CCAC members’ forum online.

WHY CART in Education

Why CART in Education?

WHY CART IN…..EDUCATION:
Because hearing loss affects people at every age and in every walk of
life, it’s almost impossible to name a career that isn’t represented
by professionals who are deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing. Whether they
were born with hearing loss, requiring accommodations throughout
elementary and higher education, or whether they acquired their
hearing loss after already establishing their careers, the one thing
they have in common is the need for full and equal access to
education. College students with hearing loss use CART to understand
everything in the classroom as it’s spoken, allowing them to ask
questions, take notes, and participate in class discussions.
Professionals use CART to attend organizational training sessions and
keep up to date on advances in their field. Attempting to learn new
material without the ability to hear or read it is an exercise in
guesswork: It’s frustrating, exhausting, and counterproductive. When the
barrier to access is removed, however, people with hearing loss are
able to improve their skills and further their careers on an equal
footing with peers and coworkers. Education is an investment in the
future, and CART makes sure it pays off.

C-print denied by public school in Ohio

October 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

Sad news – when will the ADA Law be respected? School claims no money for motivated high school student, already accepted to college. Find the funds! Respect the student’s choices for “effective” communication. Get with it.

Some say others should pay. Who is that? We are society too. We are a government of the people, for the people, by the people. We are people, we are able!

From the CCAC facebook pages – well said:

Captioning can help many people, including those with any degree of hearing loss, those who take in visual information best, those who do best by both hearing and reading. It can help with poor quality sound on videos, noisy environments, understanding someone with an accent, etc. Bring it on!!
