==================
For Audiologists and People with Hearing Aids, Implants, Accessible Technologies (aka assistive devices)::
When people first use hearing aids, Captioning inclusion helps them understand the new sounds.
Also, many of us prefer to “turn off” for an hour or more each day, too give our ears and brains a well-deserved rest, and captioning inclusion (e.g. tv, Internet videos) is a more relaxing way for us to have communication access.
For many of us with aids and implants, we depend on captioning for all conversations with 3 or more people.

Captioning Captures it All

August 14, 2011 Comments Off on Captioning Captures it All

A (hearing) visitor has this new benefit for captioning to share –in a world where many of us “multitask,” captioning helps catch up with what’s happening.

For example, watching sports on TV while also working on one’s laptop or ipad!

Other recent benefits mentioned in our members’ forum for the power of captioning:

Increasing productivity of all in work meetings: if one person is using real time captioning (CART), others find it very helpful and report being more productive.

Consider these captioning benefits: Multitasking, Productivity, Communication Access, Participation, Contributing….and all the ways captioning helps millions for learning, languages, literacy, search and more.

CCAC invites your ideas to illustrate and explain the Power of Captioning.

Paragraphs, Posters, Powerpoints, Flyers, articles, videos, etc. Send them along!

If we could come up with one powerful sentence, all the better :-).
Examples we’ve used, among others:  Captioning is our ramp for equal communication access.
Captioning is our language.
….

This is interesting – the CC button on upper right is there – the language is English – we hope this important body for the world has inclusion of quality captioning streamed live one day soon:
