WE MAINTAIN THE CCAC WEBPAGES – MANY – FOR RESOURCES FOR THE WORLD

YOUR VOICE INVITED! CAPTIONING ADVOCACY IS A TASK THAT IS VALUABLE. YOUR IDEAS, QUESTIONS, AND ENERGIES WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. MUCH ACCOMPLISHED, AND MUCH TO DO! QUALITY CAPTIONING IS MISSING IN TOO MANY PLACES.

JANUARY CCAC ADVOCACY SO FAR – SELECTED EXAMPLES
1. Members discussed a new video about the well-known wheelchair ACCESS symbol and saw that CAPTIONING was not mentioned among many symbols for many other disabilities. What to do?

2. A national human rights organization replied to the CCAC that they would add CC to their new video ASAP and to all future videos too.

3. The website of the first fabulous CAPTION STUDIES CONFERENCE is available online from August yet still needs CC added to a few presentations from those two days chock full of great information. We’re pushing to get that done, and would like to refer to the conference’s content for continuing and new captioning advocacy needed.

4. We continue to work on the design of the new CCAC website that will be more user-friendly and accessible. Stay tuned.

5. A useful document about how to talk to Congress was distributed to CCAC members and others. Many are concerned about potential changes across the USA and in other countries also that may damage or reduce resources for people with disability.

and much more…

Auditory Fatigue/Listener Fatigue

September 6, 2016 Comments Off on Auditory Fatigue/Listener Fatigue

Great review of AUDITORY fatigue – hearing and listening and understanding energies beyond what others suppose:

SayWhatClub

by Chelle Wyatt

I belong to three hearing loss organizations and they each have something I value (SWC is closest to my heart). I love my local HLAA chapter for its face to face meetings. A few weeks ago they had Susan Naidu, an audiologist at the University of Utah talk about auditory fatigue, also called listener fatigue and cognitive energy fatigue. She works with patients in the clinic, trains graduate students to become audiologists and her favorite thing to do is aural rehabilitation therapy.
