Out of the Mouths of Babes – #CaptiontheWorld

June 16, 2015 Comments Off on Out of the Mouths of Babes – #CaptiontheWorld

A new video – and the more the better – about quality captioning needed on all videos.

First a reminder about what CCAC calls “The Power of Captioning” –

Quality captioning is not only for people who are hard of hearing or deaf. It boosts search engines (they find text) so more of the world can find your video; it allows easier translations; it helps others learn new languages; captions are used by many others also (people with autism, tinnitus and no hearing loss, more). Captions ON in noisy places helps everyone (restaurants, waiting rooms, entertainment places, work cubicles).

Enjoy:

It’s about time, past time, needs must! Captioning is the world’s language. It’s not only for deaf, deafened and people with hearing loss (though mega-millions of us refuse to be “left out” any longer).

Before I started blogging, I only knew very few Deaf/HOH related blogs and ever since this and my Twitter page started, it opened a whole new door for me! After weeks of reading through blogs, posting on Facebook and Twitter, I have finally shortlisted my top ’20’ Deaf/HOH related blogs! Hope you’ll find something of interest to read.

So, I went from all these lovely blogs…

Captioning Advocacy – Sing it with the CCAC

May 28, 2015 Comments Off on Captioning Advocacy – Sing it with the CCAC

Captioning is a solution for inclusion of mega-mega-millions of us, globally, not only with hearing loss or deafness, but for many other good reasons.

Captioning must be there for “everyone” in any audience, and it’s a “universal” solution since it serves so many others too (see above). CCAC has said this for 5 years (since day one of the CCAC) and has inspired others also to say the same.

Of course some people who are blind or have other needs will not use captioning and will require other resources (and many low vision people do want and use captioning also, they are members also in the CCAC).

The important point is that many in any audience will use captioning, if not for everything all speakers say or do (or use media captioning), but for part of it or in many common situations where it’s needed (even by hearing people, e.g. noisy places, or not wanting to use audio in order not to disturb others, and more).

In a perfect world, all we mega-millions would have a combination of all the various and coming-soon technologies at low cost to try and use in all places. Until then, sing it – CCAC mission = Inclusion of Quality Captioning Universally
