Captioning Matters… to Corinne

As a person with hearing loss, captioning is crucial so that I can obtain the accurate information and formulate my opinion and thoughts in a timely manner. Videos, TV shows, meetings, and lectures are sometimes hard to understand due to many factors such as background noises, quality of sound, and ability to read the person’s lips. Without captioning, I am left with fatigue, frustration, as well as confusion from not understanding the spoken words. Captioning allows me to be independent, to fairly access the materials like everyone else, and to feel included.
