Sorry - I meant when the host doesn’t enable captions on Zoom, I wasn’t able to get captions thru using Chrome.

Mary, you mentioned the following above:

Captions work with zoom (paid version and now the free version) so I am confused when you say captions don't work on zoom...(?)

I don’t know an answer to that. Perhaps if you watch the streaming using Chrome on your laptop, though that would not be as convenient. This sounds like an area where advocacy is needed to get improvement. You might post about this on the HLAA advocacy group.

I don’t watch things live. I watch 60 Minutes and the late night comics on my iPad. Also news programs. I know how to turn captions on when there are captions, but few of the programs do. There are more often captions on the computer than on the iPad. 60 Minutes is particularly frustrating because they always have a nice big CC but when you select it there are no captions, even tho’ there are options for the color and size you want. Closer Look has captions about half the time. Stephen Colbert usually does. Anderson Cooper never does.There’s one that has captions on top that are like the old days when they were a bunch of letters that made no sense. PBS News Hour always has captions, and sometimes they are great, practically synched. But lore often they lag about 5 to 8 second behind the talker so they are close to useless. MSNBC always has a lag. I doubt they use CART, but if it’s ASR I don’t know why it lags so far. CNN does have them. There it a text logo, but it’s always greyed out.

So it tends to be erratic. I wind up choosing what I will watch based on whether there are captions and preferably the captions appear with thew speech.

Carol,
I regularly watch YouTube on my iPad, with captions. You have to turn on captioning, then the cc will appear on the video for you to choose to use them. You can Google how to do this.

I encourage you to ask HLAA to order these in quantity and put them in the order department. Know they had them a few years ago. Wonder how many were distributed.  At $7 a copy for a small order, they could sell for $10 and clear costs.  Makes me realize how much I’ve missed having ‘real’ conventions where I”ve been able to pick up an amazing number of excellent materials.

I am in the SAME boat!!  

 

I lead a Hearing Solutions SIG in Sun City Texas (not an HLAA chapter because we can only inclue Sun City residents).  We will be starting up and rebuilding our membership in September and really want to have this available!!  I have previously gotten them at the HLAA Convention or ordered them from the HLAA site.

Now I am trying to order the current year's copy of this publication. In the past I have been able to order it on the HLAA national website (www.hearingloss.org) for about $18.
