The author suggests in great detail how Universal Captioning is an innovative alternate solution to the concerns for Full Communication Access among not only deaf and hard-of-hearing people, but also how it is beneficial for everyone (eg. people with low literacy skills, foreign language learners, foreign language speakers who have a heavy accent and hard for others to understand, or for people with normal hearing who are in a noisy or restrictive environment).
This book raised my awareness and made me recognize that with the rise of Technological advances (such as the internet/texting), along with new Laws that have been put in place to support deaf and hard-of-hearing people, the only thing that remains to be improved is our Attitude toward making a difference. I think that many people ignore and/or belittle the importance of providing alternate ways to communicate. This book strives to help us understand, urges us take responsibility and use the resources necessary to provide quality captioning and communication improvement on a universal scale.
Excellent read for anybody who is trying to be inclusive, especially businesses.
