February 20 Program Meeting – Open Captioning and Practical Strategies

Open Captioning and Practical Strategies – presented by Winden Royalty

When Winden Royalty listens to people in public situations talk about communicating with those who have hearing loss, they tend to mention hearing aids, closed captioning or a sign interpreter. Many people struggle with hearing loss, but you may not even know someone has hearing loss until they tell you about it. Thankfully, many types of technology exist that can improve an audience’s understanding in various situations at work without drawing unwanted attention to those who may struggle with hearing. Also, a basic understanding of inclusive habits that can ensure more people are able to follow conversations can reduce misunderstandings and improve relationships in general.
