  • Tuesday, October 2, 2018

    Learn from VITAC's own experts: Heather York and John Capobianco
  • 12:00-12:30pm, ET

  • From the conference room to the classroom to the living room, captioning content not only satisfies ADA regulations but, perhaps more importantly, makes information attainable and retainable for the 50 million people in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community (DHOH) and the broader viewing markets (especially millennials) that choose captions over sound.

    Join host Heather York, VITAC vice president of marketing and government affairs, and presenter John Capobianco, VITAC chief marketing officer, on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 12 PM ET for a webinar examining the importance and myriad benefits of captioned content.

    The webinar will discuss:

    • How captions (both live and prerecorded) are created
    • The role that captions play in everyday life
    • Caption requirements
    • The differences between human-generated captions and those created by automated speech recognition programs, among other topics
