“Accessibility is like oxygen, you only notice when you don’t have it” Mark Balsano
#CAPaware16: 14 to 19 November 2016
Show your support for the 11 million people in the UK who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing by sharing your photo online. Online and in media is where captions are needed most. And a lot of leading players in the media, arts and communications industry are not captioning their content.
This Captioning Awareness Week, put your name in the frame, like we did, and help increase the profile of captions to be 100% available across all programmes.
How to get involved:
‘Put your name in the frame’ by taking a ‘selfie’ and uploading it to Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #CAPaware16.
- Download and print an A4 #CAPaware16 colour frame (here) or black and white frame (here), there’s also an editable PDF frame (here)
Remember for many people captions are like oxygen. Without them, they can’t enjoy life’s many pleasures.
