Webinar logo - Why CaptionCaptions play a crucial role in the daily lives of tens of millions of Americans in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, and reach new audiences every day via computer screens, tablets, and smartphones. Adding captions to your content immediately makes that content inclusive and accessible. It also helps satisfy federal requirements, including those from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508, and the Federal Communications Commission.

VITAC’S “Why Caption” webinar examines the myriad benefits of captioning, and discusses reasons to caption all content from a variety of regulatory, industry, and consumer standpoints.

How Captioning Works” discusses how captions (both live and prerecorded) are created, and the role that captions play in everyday life, among other topics.
