Election Year Update-Ohio Success with Live Captioning!
September 23, 2014 Comments Off on Election Year Update-Ohio Success with Live Captioning!
CCAC is very happy to report that a live election event yesterday in Cincinnati included live captioning for all.
We are also pleased that the League of Women Voters there responded to the CCAC campaign called “Captions Capture the Votes” and asked good questions to learn how to arrange this!
We are triply happy that others were able to see and use live captioning (also called real time or CART) for the very first time!
One in five Americans has a hearing loss. Forty-eight million Americans have a hearing loss. Others find listening in new room, new voices, or background noises to be annoying and they benefit from quality captioning too.
Ask your candidates soon – tell us if you do please. We aim to continue this important access campaign during the next two years – join us, participate, if not you also, then who? Thanks!
