CCAC Invites Videos for “How Captions Capture Life for Me”

July 19, 2014 Comments Off on CCAC Invites Videos for “How Captions Capture Life for Me”

New CCAC Captioning Advocacy Idea from our members – let’s see how this develops, it’s a good one!

Here’s the idea – we invite you to send us a short Video (up to 2 minutes maximum or shorter) about how Captioning helps you – in a very specific situation – a very detailed way.

lights, with directors_chair

How are you going to speak about this – or illustrate it? You can make the video of yourself telling about it – or use a friend – or a catchy short series of photos – cartoons – whatever!

The video must have quality captioning too – if you need help with that, just ask the CCAC.

Your own specific situation might be for media of any kind (videos, movies, other media? games or apps or TV or web series, or ?)…OR..

…it might be for telephone calls, job-hunting, teaching, church, any live events (meetings, conferences, social life, webinars, school, work, or ?).

Put on your thinking caps now! We are looking for 12 – TWELVE – of these short videos. At the end of 12 months, there will be a prize for the best – we’ll take votes :-).

Ask us questions now, tell us your ideas, get that webcamera going and look smart :-).

Ready, camera, action!

(Not sure what to call these videos yet – any suggestions? For now, we’re calling it “Captions Capture Life for Me” – but maybe there’s a better name for this project…tell us!

The Best 6 Political Campaign Ads of the Summer (So Far)

July 18, 2014 Comments Off on The Best 6 Political Campaign Ads of the Summer (So Far)

How Totally Wonderful that TIME has added Quality Captioning for these political ads! Thank you TIME! Tell the candidates that their ads on their own webpages have no access! No quality cc for millions of voters. We invite your interest in this non-partisan campaign called “Captions Capture the Votes!” – Read more here: http://ccacaptioning.org/captions-capture-the-votes/
(Candidate in ME – only this one is cc’d of course since only Signing is used – by the way, 99% of deaf/deafeend/hoh do not use sign language – we use captioning, the world’s language.)

These are the dog days of election year politics. The fields are mostly set, and the final battle is still too far away to matter much. Plus, who wants to think about politics in summer? The answer: The campaign ad makers. Political Mad Men have no problem working the heat into their spots, or doing even better by making political spots so compelling we can’t look away even when we would rather be swimming.

So without further ado, here is our take on 2014’s top 6 political ads of the summer, so far.

6.”Sunshine” – Charlie Crist, Democratic candidate for Governor of Florida

Charlie Crist pays homage to the sunshine state of Florida through this ad’s theme. The high-quality video clearly outlines what Crist accomplished in his last term and what his goals are should he be reelected, which gives viewers a clear picture of what this candidate…

Life is full of ups and downs. Bravo for this new video from ‘youth” in Europe. Quality captioning included, our language (for deaf and hard of hearing) and a global communication feature!

Karina is a CCAC member too.  She was the Educational Adviser and trainer for this study session on behalf of the Council of Europe.

There was a participant from Armenia who needed RTC and that was provided (aka CART/STTR).

Walking Live Captioning – Americans in London Town (UK)

Saying a special “well done” to the professional live captioning provider (Darlene) and the University of Washington for the support they are giving to a student who is studying abroad (in London) this semester. How great to have communication access needed for class, theater, and walking tours!
