December 13, 2013 Comments Off on Mega-Millions Excluded at Mandela Event – No Live Captioning
We hope to publish a few blogposts on this, yours invited, send them along! And for starters:
SL Users (sign language) rightly furious about gibberish language on global event to honor Mandela – with world leaders there.
Where was the live captioning for the event?
All public events must have inclusion of quality live captioning!
Repeat – all public events must ensure quality live captioning – not only for mega-million of deaf who do not use SL, but for many millions of others too!
We other deaf, deafened, and people with hearing loss support and applaud inclusion of SL for public events, and the current global interest in SL. At the same time, who is making noise about exclusion of millions more due to lack of our language? Quality real time speech-to-text!
For all media coverage also – Captioning required for Television visuals and Internet videos.
