There’s such a high level of activity right now in the CCAC Members’ Forum online, and it’s great. Some of it, naturally, is about captioning inclusion for cinema and theaters. Some of it is for many other venues – e.g. sports stadiums, any youtube video you want captioning for, and more.
Other captioning needed at times here: the medical conference that your family has coming up, the job interview you need, a community meeting where you want to voice your views and “hear” others’ points fully; a political campaign that needs your understanding, and more….
While categories outside of “entertainment” are more complicated to tackle, we aim to kep trying in the CCAC! Coming up – we need your participation and support also.
Participation in CCAC Member discussions online is available four ways for your convenience (if you become a member): each message by email, the digest (one email a day with a listing of all messages), the abridged (one email a day with the subjects), or no email at all and you participate from the CCAC forum webpage itself (a googlegroup for now).
If you elect the abridged or no emails, it’s important to be a “google user” also, and remind yourself to ‘go to’ the CCAC forum regularly, or when you have time. To become a google user, for many who may not use google for anything yet (smile) — simply “sign up” and “sign in” with your own email address and your own password.
However, you don’t need anything at all to have the group send you an email for all discussions. You don’t pay anything either :-). And you only need to understand how important more advocacy for inclusion of quality captioning is.
We coined these E’s to Express our Entire Effort in the CCAC these days: (send us your E’s too!) — Enthusiasm, Expertise, Enjoyment, Experience, and Excellence.
No Excuses – if you support captioning inclusion for so many good reasons, universally, the time to join the CCAC is now.
