LIVE STREAMS ONLINE NEED LIVE CAPTIONING TOO!
April 16, 2016 Comments Off on LIVE STREAMS ONLINE NEED LIVE CAPTIONING TOO!
THESE live broadcasts, e.g. so many on Facebook now, are one of the new ways for people to become involved – typing comments and questions.
One example here:
ADVOCACY NEEDED! As these media bloom, it’s not only web tv and all the gazillions of youtube videos and others that must have quality captioning, it’s these live streams also.
MEDIA captioning is not expensive – often free. LIVE EVENT captioning will cost something – and even for a whole hour – not so much!
AS I POST this today, it says this has over 98,000 views. We can estimate that 20,000 or more of those would use quality captioning for full access. Even if “only” 10,000 or 5,000? Same – it’s vital, we need it. Not only for hearing loss and deafness, but also for many others with language differences, watching with sound off for number of good reasons, for search engine optimization, etc.
