    Many of us, in the CCAC membership, and many others also, are working regularly to advocate for Internet captioning for some time now. In the CCAC, we have three CCAC CAPS for this (Captioning Advocacy Projects):

    1. Health Care videos online – all need captioning. One CCAC member has contacted several larger medical organizations about this need. Other members contact other resources online with information and a request to caption all materials online asap.

    2. Community/Clubs/Religion – A Team of CCAC members is very active in captioning advocacy for this CCAC category of life, e.g. a number of videos online require captioning asap for equal communication access for all – from churches, for community events of many kinds (e.g. film festivals), and for clubs that are meaningful for many (Veterans, Lions, Rotary, Garden, and many more).

    3. CCAC members have their own focused advocacy outside of the CCAC – e.g. Jamie Berke and her great advocacy for getting all new Web Series (entertainment series online that are not from television) to include quality captioning asap.

    And more – tell us what you are doing to add energy for Internet captioning. Not sure? Join the CCAC and chat with us in the members’ forum online.

What’s this?
