What is “The Power of Captioning”?

This is a concept that is vital for the mega-millions of citizens who are …

  • Learning to read text in class, television, online
  • Learning a new language
  • In need of translations
  • Benefiting from immediate transcription, without requiring note takers or a flawless memory
  • Employed and working with different accents, poor acoustics, noisy backgrounds – to boost productivity
  • Managing productive lives with different learning and listening styles
  • Doing business to reach wider markets via Search Engine Optimization techniques
  • Using captioning in situations rather than increasing volume, so as not to disturb others
  • Navigating life with different hearing or no hearing (46 million people in USA alone, one in five globally) to contribute valuable skills and abilities
