MEDIA CAPTIONING ADVOCACY UPDATE: HEAR THIS, SEE THIS @THEONION – CAPTIONED!
October 23, 2015 Comments Off on MEDIA CAPTIONING ADVOCACY UPDATE: HEAR THIS, SEE THIS @THEONION – CAPTIONED!
THE CCAC MEDIA TEAM has been reaching out to The Onion from early October, via emails and tweets. Most recently, we were able to telephone them also, and we were told by the Public Relations and Communications person that she’d pass our message along. We hope to hear from them soon!
And today, a CCAC member has added qualty CAPTIONING to one video for The Onion. How sweet it is to be included – if a deaf person can do this with a transcript prepared by a friend (thank you Michael!) then anyone can! The Onion probably has good scripts for all its videos now. That’s the major work involved. The rest is easy.
And trying to embed actual video here: http://michael-lockrey.wistia.com/medias/fcadkm8pew?embedType=iframe&videoWidth=640
We want to push them forward, offer guidance, tell The Onion how vital this is. Don’t Leave Us Out!
Get involved. Join and support the CCAC any way you can. Your voice counts!
