One week on from the #CaptionTHIS and #SubtitlesNOW Twitter campaigns, the Collaborative for Communication Access via Captioning (CCAC) has released its first film to raise awareness of the importance of subtitles, (or captioning) for deaf people across the world.
The video features deaf people from countries across the world, and was created by the CCAC using volunteers, so that it could be freely distributed via YouTube.
The CCAC is a hub for all those who support the captioning mission and was set up in America in 2009 before going on to work with international members.
Here’s the video. You can find out more about CCAC here: http://ccacaptioning.org/
