April 23, 2012 Comments Off on Captions (Subtitles) Get the Word Out!
Learning a new language?
Want a global audience?
Have a hearing loss? Are you deaf or Deaf? or deafened?
Makes no difference to the CCAC!
The world needs captioning – some of us in many situations, others in some places.
And if we are healthy active people, many of us need it every day!
Many sorts of captioning, live, online, in our ten categories of life (including “cart” or “sttr” or realtime captioning, including voice writing too)…and more!
And many sorts of deafness and hearing loss also – and many current discussions about what “deaf” means.
Hear this: advocate for captioning inclusion universally – it’s the only way we can all communicate together, deaf or not, hearing or not, using one or more languages or not, with hearing aids or not, with implants or not, with loops (many sorts) or not too.
Sure, some other resources, and not to forget signing that is vital for some, work for many also. However, full communication access for all of us requires captioning! Join the CCAC (go to ccacaptioning.org) and help us spread the word!
P.S. Blindness and low vision require audio description (text to speech). And deaf-blind needs are important to address also. The CCAC has one mission – much more inclusion of quality captioning.
April 19, 2012 Comments Off on Autism and Captioning
We are told that captioning inclusion helps – and is used by – many people who have a difference called autism (along a continuum of related differences*), and we are happy to share this video below. Not sure if it’s produced by a “commercial” company or not, yet the inclusion of quality captioning here is also noteworthy (it’s good!).

April 16, 2012 Comments Off on Time to Caption This
Time to change the order here, there, and many places!
Dictionary says, for “caption” — (from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/caption)
a : the heading especially of an article or document
b : the explanatory comment or designation accompanying a pictorial illustration
c : a motion-picture subtitle
CCAC suggests, thinking with you all here:
a. text instead of sound, words, or any audio – the written or produced text for reading instead of “hearing”
b. realtime speech to text translation (some prefer transcription, interpretation, transformation) so that millions who need text to “hear” conversations and more are included
c. captioning and subtitles on media, from television to internet, in movies and anyplace any media is shown; not only visually (any sound presentations too)
d. oh yes – a line under a cartoon or photo
e. a bubble in a cartoon that has text for the words
f. heading of an article? really?
