NEW FROM CCAC: GET YOUR VIDEO SELECTIONS CAPTIONED!
November 1, 2015 Comments Off on NEW FROM CCAC: GET YOUR VIDEO SELECTIONS CAPTIONED!
HEAR THIS! SPECIAL CAPTIONING ADVOCACY PROJECT FOR NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER 2015: GET YOUR VIDEO – ANY PUBLIC VIDEO OR YOUR OWN PERSONAL VIDEO – CAPTIONED BY CCAC VOLUNTEER.
Small (very low) fee covers costs only. 2-month trial starts now – https://t.co/GeGB4PnSVg
CCAC, MAKING CAPTIONING HAPPEN – ACCESS AVAILABLE! ACT SOON.
Why are we doing this? Offering to caption up to SIX short videos during these two months (maximum of 3 minutes each) for only $10 to cover costs? (Cost is to get transcript – this is not a fundraising effort for the CCAC at all). It’s education and advocacy and raising awareness, and we hope it leads to many more companies online taking note how important quality captioning of all media online truly is.)
Many times companies tell us it “can’t be done” or “it’s too complicated” or “not many people really want it” etc etc. etc ad nauseum! Well, we can do it even though we are deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, or just plain interested and have the energies, even as volunteers.
We hope it shows you and others how captioning brings in deeper attention, retention, and just plain engagement for fun or learning – that’s a good reason also.
Mega-millions of good people globally need captioning due to hearing, language or other differences. It’s past time for access and inclusion. In addition to asking every day, CCAC members offer to “just do it” with this project (in addition to the CCAC Grants for free Live Event Captioning, see link on http://CCACaptioning.org).
It’s VERY important that you help us spread this announcement please. We aim for many “takers” to see if people are interested. We KNOW many are, it’s a question of reaching them – please tell others.
