Raised on the Southern Oregon Coast, now retired on the Southern Oregon Coast. I was a hard of hearing child who grew up to be a deafened adult. I share and write about deafness, hearing loss and other things I find interesting. I am a 50 something year old woman who could be anyone's mother, grandmother or friend. I've traveled the U.S., and I've lived in Europe. I'm currently residing near the beach with Fabulous Husband and 11 year old son. ~ Joyce Edmiston

Does Closed Captioning Still Serve Deaf People?
Lauren Storck of CCAC posted this video on Facebook. As stated in this video, "360 MILLION" deaf and people with hearing loss around the world matter. Watch this 10 minute video by Gary Robson and experience why captions are so important, and the new FCC law.
If you need captions, like I do, click the "YouTube" button and once you are on the YouTube page, click the CC button.
