For four years, Delanie Harrington, a student at California’s Poway High School, has sought classroom captions – and her family continues the fight, to ensure future students access these captions and ‘live’ classroom notes.
Harrington’s story is very typical of families who actively break ground in education systems, for minority students to receive newer access options. Elsewhere in the US, school districts are starting to proactively provide classroom captions, seeing the value students get from a ‘live’ set of notes.
Broadband links, a laptop and cables are typically the only kit students need for classroom captions – while many captioning service providers will also transcribe video and podcast content that falls within the same student brief.
