Captions don’t have to be projected onto a screen. They can also provided on the wall of the auditorium just off to the side of the person who was speaking. Captions can, and should be, provided in every classroom, courtroom, church, meeting, medical appointment, anywhere where words are spoken, for access to language for all who are deaf or hard of hearing.
This 3 and 1/2 minute film was created by Collaborative for Communication Access via Captioning (CCAC), an international volunteer advocacy organization. Take a few minutes and become aware and educated with the issue. Be inclusive. Be accessible.
