Captions (Subtitles) are now included in a number of places – thanks to CCAC energies and those of many others over past years. Lots more to do – it’s missing in so many places still.

CCAC offers three sorts of GRANTS to eligible associations and individuals for inclusion of LIVE EVENT CAPTIONING. And the newest thank you from a recipient makes our day! See below.
All grant recipients are very grateful. It always helps to ensure an event is inclusive and accessible, and at the same time, it educates and raises awareness that live captioning exists! You can ask for it. You can see what others can hear clearly.
The newest grant recipient is a worthy organization in Canada. Information on this webpage – http://ccacaptioning.org/ccac-sponsorship-for-cart-a-new-captioning-advocacy-program/
And their thank you is delightful – we thank them for using live captioning!

Enjoy this one – bravo to all involved. Is BBC listening? Can they hear the need? Mega-millions globally require quality CAPTIONING (subtitles) on all media online, including all the live streams now. Not only sign language users. Millions of other deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing people too – in many situations!
Hope you can open this on VIMEO website: https://vimeo.com/209772831
Hear this – do you have children or grandchildren? Care about quality CAPTIONING? We encourage you to make a 1-2 minute video for the CCAC – email us soon. If you are a professional video maker – tell us. If you are not a pro – fine too. CCACaptioning@gmail.com

January 23, 2017 Comments Off on CCAC GRANTS FOR LIVE CAPTIONING
Reminder that CCAC (not a captioning company), an official non-profit community of very active captioning activists and advocates, offers three sorts of Grants – check out the page of information. Others have found the small grant to be very useful and motivating. The goal is access and inclusion for those who don’t know much about any of this. See http://ccacaptioning.org/ccac-sponsorship-for-cart-a-new-captioning-advocacy-program/.
Please read the eligibility pointers, and take time to go down to the bottom of the long page too – for CCAC members there are grants for events that you deserve to enjoy. Best to all, LS, CCAC and CaptionMatchShow less

Our short book is a paperback or kindle on Amazon. Have you enjoyed it yet?
Perhaps a good item for a meeting of your hearing loss group? For family? Others?
It’s a collection of some personal and family memories from yours truly, a deafened adult for some time now (and founder and president of the CCAC). My friends love the book – smile.
