Watch: BBC Breakfast News’ cochlear implant debates – with subtitles

Posted on April 1, 2014

After the video of a woman’s response to having her cochlear implant switched on went viral last week, BBC Breakfast News hosted a debate with William Mager (Series Producer of See Hear) and Craig Crowley (CEO of Action Deafness) in which they discussed the issue of how cochlear implants are viewed by the media, against the reality.

At the time, the debates were shown with live subtitles which ran a few seconds behind the action. Which is why it’s great that they’ve now been fully subtitled by See Hear, and can both be watched on the BBC website.
