That’s something we ALL need to watch out for our local TV news. Personally I know it don’t always caption everything it runs daily at variety time slot especially LIVE series. Sorry, I don’t watch TV news everyday but I try to do from time to time.
This is perfect example that we have to alert FCC if we saw serious weather alert even flood warning, fire warning, and all those small stuff that can make difference in our deaf community.
Please do voice, email, phone or fax TV news if you have any problem with their closed captioning. If you need help how to do it, please feel free to ask me how and I will help you all the way. It’s not that hard, really; we will spend our free time to find out how to reach right person from TV news network and resolve it.
Of course, if they won’t response or follow up – we just report it to FCC and they will help us out!
I know its all wasting our times but someone has to do it. That’s how we did accomplish so many things in the past and we will continue improve all issues today and in the future.
Good job, deaf community from San Diego, California!
