February 14, 2017 § Leave a comment
YOU KNOW THAT THE CCAC started new advocacy for Facebook videos a few weeks ago.
We have a right to EQUAL COMMUNICATION ACCESS.
When there are no quality captions on social media videos, that’s not right. We’re left out, ignored, and dis-respected. Quality CC vital.
Now there are so many more LIVE STREAMS – LIVE VIDEOS on Facebook also. See our recent blogposts here about this too.
Today CCAC member have begun to send FB this message, directly to Facebook Accessibility teams, using this link: https://www.facebook.com/help/accessibility
Take two minutes soon to use that link to send your message for this vital captioning advocacy, something like this please:
“There are 48 million of us in the US with significant hearing loss who could understand Facebook a lot better with live captions. Automatic and other poor captions are referred to as “craptions.” They’re often unintelligible. LIVE VIDEOS ON FB NEEDS LIVE CAPTIONING and ALL VIDEOS ON FB NEED QUALITY CC. Thank you Facebook.”
Many more organizations and others are putting LIVE videos on FB. We want to participate. Don’t leave us out! Live streams with live captioning needed!
Will you help?
