No captioning? You Are Unapproachable!

August 26, 2012 § 2 Comments


We love words, as do so many reading :-). Decided to look up opposite for “access” today. None.

Then searched for opposite for accessible – it’s unapprochable.

Another is obscure, that’s it, and this one as bad if you want to communicate.

Access means entry and more – it means participation, inclusion, contribution. Access is used in different contexts, yet for communication, it’s all.

Communication aims to engage others. It’s almost always assuming human interaction, a two way street, or a roundabout for many people to share everyday life’s experiences.

Access to communication is vital – online, and everyday, in all ways.

Use captioning to communicate. If not, you are unapproachable. Is that how you want to be perceived?

Communication Creates Confusion!

August 8, 2012 Comments Off on Communication Creates Confusion!

To speak, to talk, to communicate, by words, signs, body language or smoke? – smile – it’s far from the whole story!

Interpreting, translating, explaining, elaborating – it’s all part of communicating.

Starting a conversation is only the beginning however.

The real challenge is to build dialogue.

Communication creates confusion! Sometimes chaos!

Yet if we all have the resources we need, be it full quality and real time captioning or whatever you need, we can continue to breathe, create meaning, and combine efforts for a saner and caring world.

Celebrate captioning, join the CCAC:
