AIR TRAVEL ACCESS CONTINUES! HEAR THIS AMERICAN AIRLINES
June 9, 2016 Comments Off on AIR TRAVEL ACCESS CONTINUES! HEAR THIS AMERICAN AIRLINES
We pay the same to fly any airline as any “hearing” person. We enjoy In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) the same as any hearing person IF THERE IS ACCESS WITH QUALITY CAPTIONING FOR US ALL.
CCAC advocates for Air Travel Access for several years. It’s a slow process. Currently, the Department of Transportation (USA) is discussing many aspects of this need – IFE and also, we hope and have encouraged them – discussing live text for airport announcements.
There are many ways we advocate, e.g. from CCAC leadership to government directly, to their consultants, to our representatives, on social media and other online communications. We join others in their personal and individual advocacy too, as well as other groups. If we have not talked yet, get in touch. Strength in numbers and in good collaborations.
This week a captioning advocate asked CCAC to join his campaign to American Airlines which we are happy to hear about and participate in – collaborate with. On his flight this week between NY and Austin, American Air had no films with CC.
He and we continue seeking solutions from American Airlines ASAP. We invite you to contact them on Twitter or any other way you prefer. @AmericanAirlines
Coincidentally today (June 9) a family member of mine flew from Seattle to NY on American. No captions at all.

Captioning is not only for millions of people with hearing loss and deafness who travel, but also for so many others who deserve equal communication access! Examples include non-English speakers and good people with many differences who use captioning too.
We also hope you JOIN the actual CCAC official non-profit very soon! We are all volunteers and our membership needs you too. Join from the website, CCACaptioning.org – CCAC is the Place 2 B 4 Captioning Advocacy
