> Dear All,
> On behalf of Judith Hellerstein, At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group
> lead and NARALO's Secretary, we are pleased to announce that the FY 16
> At-Large Captioning Pilot Project<
> will start in January 2016.
> The captioning will be provided by "Caption First Incorporated".
> As agreed to by the At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group, the
> implementation of this project will be structured as follows:
> * Three calls to include captioning each month for a total of 9
> teleconferences, not exceeding 60 minutes per call (with the exception of
> the ALAC Monthly Meeting)
> * The calls shall be held between January - April 2016.
> * During the first pilot phase of this captioning project the language
> used will be English.
> * In order to select the calls the captioning team has developed a set
> of criteria to evaluate and rate the requests. The request for captioning
> must meet at least one of these criteria to be put on the list.
> Criteria for Captioning:
> 1) Are there persons with disabilities or with limited bandwidth
> 2) Are there webinars of general interest to the ICANN community that
> would increase the engagement of non-native English speakers?
> 3) Are the meetings or discussions about accessible tools or software?
> If you would like to have a teleconference captioned during this pilot
> phase please submit your request to At-Large Staff<mailto:
> staff at atlarge.icann.org> by January 15th.
> * The At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group, in collaboration with
> At-Large Staff, will select the calls that will have captioning based on
> the criteria noted above.
> * A short poll will be made at the end of each call where captioning
> is used to ask for feedback on the captioning program during that call.
> See further details Wiki: At-Large Captioning Pilot Project<
> Thank you for your support in the planning and implementation of this
> exciting project.
