Universality of Captioning

A lecture from the ACCESS-ed Conference 2008 presented by Virginia Chiaverina, of PEPNet, which goes in depth on the idea of captioning from its beginning to today and how it can be applied to classroom settings. The lecture is presented in five parts, each of which apply to captioning but all entail a different aspect.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
