Since learning about TV captions in 8th grade, I cannot imagine my life without good quality captions – for movies, videos, live events. I didn’t start going to movie theaters until I was in college when I learned about movies with open captions that were displayed directly on the screen and it was a wonderful experience! Sadly, later more theaters decided to stop offering open captions and started to force deaf and hard of hearing patrons to use cumbersome closed captioned devices.
I am writing a follow up to my article, Fire Alarm to Protest Against a Captioned Movie? – where I mentioned about a 30-something man pulling fire alarm to protest against the open-captioned Avengers at a movie theater in Maryland last year.
Love does not care if you have hearing or not, and it also does not care if you can communicate verbally. I would like to show three videos to demonstrate that. Enjoy the videos and Happy Valentine’s Day!
