Like subtitles, open captions give a deaf or hard-of-hearing viewer access to information contained on an audio track. The non-profit Captioned Media Program provides free-loan open-captioned media to such individuals, and is administered by the National Association of the Deaf and funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education. More than 4,000 videos and DVDs are available including special interest, educational videos and Spanish-language.
CMP has produced a series of English and Spanish radio public service announcements, and is looking for help via airplay in spreading the word about the program. For more information, contact Ray Frieders at (520) 370-4000 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
