New York Times Videos Have No Captioning! Help Advocate:
March 20, 2015 § 4 Comments
It’s 2015 and the New York Times, a global news company, has no quality captioning on any of their many videos online! Please help advocate now by a message to any or all of the contacts below, using emails, twitter or any other methods to advocate. If you want to send a message with us, just email CCACaptioning@gmail.com to be your co-sender or co-author. Let’s advocate!
Vital for Informed Citizenship: Advocate to the NEW YORK TIMES to create access with Quality Captioning on all their videos online. Millions are waiting too long.
Many good ideas are under discussion in the CCAC forum online too – join to participate, or email CCAC. Some suggest volunteers do captioning for the New York Times and some say it’s their job! Some want legal action. Talk to the NAD about their ideas too.
To advocate now, contact some or all of the following, using emails, social media, your other networks. Let us know if you do and let us know if they reply (so far, only a “brush off” reply similar to one CCAC got two years ago!).
New Hashtag for Tweets = #NYTimesCCvital – find, follow and use this with CCAC – on Twitter, here: https://twitter.com/CCACaptioningnd here’s some MORE contact info – give it a go, now or soon, thanks if you do!
Want more from The New York Times?
Tell them we are tired of waiting for access with Quality CC; refer them to https://ccacblog.wordpress.com/2015/03/20/new-york-times-videos-have-no-captioning-help-advocate/, and/or, do it your way!
Cheers for the CCAC captioning advocacy and all helping with this, in whatever way you can.
