SAME LANGUAGE SUBTITLES VITAL!

August 13, 2017 Comments Off on SAME LANGUAGE SUBTITLES VITAL!

EVER enjoy a foreign film with great captioning until they start speaking in English for a short time?

Then subtitles stop – ugh! This happened to me the other night on Amazon prime videos. It also happens on Netflix. Double ugh.

What we need to advocate for is SAME LANGUAGE SUBTITLES, and we need same language subtitles on ALL VIDEOS of course.

For example, videos and live streams online now from so many GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS all over the world, including from the White House.

We need same language subtitles to enjoy all our British TV shows. Many times the accents are a little confusing. Read this about the dilemma: https://web.archive.org/web/20080321131957/http://www.tvweek.com/blogs/blink/2007/05/translated_from_the_british.php

LEGAL VIEW FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION – WHY LEAVE US OUT?

May 27, 2017 Comments Off on LEGAL VIEW FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION – WHY LEAVE US OUT?

Sharing this excellent long legal perspective to help “deaf” using SL (sign language) to get effective communications they need for medical consultations.

Since 98% or more of mega-millions of deaf/deafened/hoh folks do not use SL, it’s important to have a good legal perspective for us also – many of us require Quality Live Captioning for effective communication. Essentially, the same suggestions apply as in the good article.

And raise your own voices.
Join the CCAC if you care to discuss this with others. We hope you do.

What is the Power of Captioning?

April 25, 2017 Comments Off on What is the Power of Captioning?

What is “The Power of Captioning”? is an edited article from the CCAC newsletters published during 2012. We welcome your examples in comments here, and your questions, as always.

This is a concept that is vital for mega-millions of citizens who are …

  • Learning to read or wanting to boost reading skills
  • Learning a new language
  • In need of translations
  • Needing immediate transcription (full notes) without requiring note takers or a flawless memory
  • Employed or at leisure with others who have different accents, in situations with poor acoustics, noisy backgrounds (sports places, restaurants and bars, etc.)
  • Managing productive lives with different learning and listening styles (such as auditory perceptual differences, autism, tinnitus without hearing loss, others)
  • Doing business to reach wider markets via Search Engine Optimization – no search without good captions on any media online
  • Using captioning in situations rather than increasing volume, so as not to disturb others in very quiet places (e.g. libraries)
  • Navigating life with different hearing or no hearing (48 million people in USA alone, one in four or five globally)
  • Hearing people use captioning in all the above ways as well.
