February 2, 2017 Comments Off on HEAR THIS FACEBOOK: LIVE STREAMS NEED QUALITY CAPTIONING
DEAR CCAC BLOG READERS ALL,
PLEASE JOIN THIS ADVOCACY. All of you Users/consumers of captioning, all providers, all disability advocates, and others who know how important equal access is.
CCAC making progress on learning more and advocacy for LIVE CAPTIONS FOR LIVE STREAMED EVENTS, e.g. on FACEBOOK. Step by step! Many more of you needed to help please.
Seems that even FB may not be aware that there are several CAPTIONED STREAMS now. We have yet to see one, but now we are in touch with two captioning providers who are kindly getting more information for us all.
Stay tuned. It’s about equality! Captioning is our access, our language.
Hope many of you will help in this advocacy – on FB, twitter, and many other places. Please tell us what and where you are advocating soon. We’ll join you there too!

CAPTIONING USERS: three ways to contact FB from your own FB page – go to settings and then bottom has Help, Support, and Report Problem. Follow steps of all to ask for “Live Captions on Live Streams on FB Now!” Thanks if you do.
There are MANY live webcasts now, live events all over the Internet. There is no LAW yet that says Internet events and information and communications must be accessible. Many good captioning providers are using many good systems to figure out and deliver quality captioning LIVE. This is what we need, mega millions of us globally. If you know more about any of this, if you are a provider or consumer, please tell us more here or email.
LET’S TALK CAPTIONING!
