CAPTIONS not ONLY FOR DEAF! HEAR US ROAR

November 20, 2013 § 2 Comments

Okay, overload on something makes us roar today- Captions (subtitles) are not only for “deaf” and people with hearing loss!
bubble (like a caption bubble) yet instead of text, shows varieties of humans
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.

    Folks have sent us some great additions to our listing above about why Captioning is universally good! Here they are, and if anyone, anytime, asks you why bother with inclusion of quality captioning (subtitles), let them hear you roar —

    They help everyone and not just people with hearing loss, particularly when the dialogue is difficult, out-dated, not easy to follow or when people have a strong accent etc.- in other words, captions help everyone if dialogue is difficult (media, entertainment, live discussion) due to accents, noise, poor enunciation

    Captions also help every one to watch tv or videos also when you don’t want to disturb others with noise. In train or when the rest of the family is sleeping…

    We were at a new restaurant yesterday and happy to see the captioning ON for all (restaurants are so noisy) –

    They help those folks with a reading disability and I use them to aid me when I can (find them)!…I also wish old shows could have them!

    My hearing kids and now my hearing grand daughter have never watched TV without captions.. they learned to read on screen before most kids ever interacted with a computer..

    And, grab this one! Sign language interpreters can (and do) look at the CART screen also, to fingerspell complex words, and more. Yeah for real time captioning pro’s!

What’s this?
