CAPTIONS not ONLY FOR DEAF! HEAR US ROAR
November 20, 2013 §
Okay, overload on something makes us roar today- Captions (subtitles) are not only for “deaf” and people with hearing loss!
Captions serve so many millions of citizens globally in other good ways – quality captioning teaches us language, it helps people with tinnitus (and no hearing loss), they are useful for people along the autism spectrum of differences in learning and cognitive styles; they help us learn a foreign language, and for people who must learn the language of a new country, they are priceless aids; they help children learn to read too (literacy rocks!)…they allow others to find your media online in more ways (if you media is captioned)…live captioning gives you an immediate transcript for record-keeping. Anyone who wants to add to this pretty good list? Please do! CAPTIONS ARE NOT FOR DEAF (only). Roar for Captions – they Communicate to everyone.
