Conferences Online: Live Event Captions: Don’t Leave Us Out!
December 7, 2015 Comments Off on Conferences Online: Live Event Captions: Don’t Leave Us Out!
Today, as I type here, there is a choice of two streaming live conferences in Europe. They started in the morning (European time zones of course). We encourage other time zones globally to tune in when they can today (and tomorrow).
ACCESS AND INCLUSION!
STREAMED LIVE ONLINE WITH LIVE EVENT CAPTIONING!
One is via this link: http://dostopnatv.si/en/live-streaming/ (the opening presentation was superb, by Ms. Saks from ITU, part of UN)
The second one is two days, via this link: https://scic.ec.europa.eu/streaming/european-day-of-persons-with-disabilities-07-12
CCAC advocates for all conferences to do this – not only “disability” conferences. We are world citizens, hearing or disabled or not. We want to learn, participate, and give back to topics of interest that are not only “disability” or “hearing loss” related. Advocate with us. When is your next conference?
