Dear Judith,

First of all congratulations with the initiation of this project and the efforts put in this.

As you know APRALO always supported this idea and we are very much looking forward to be involved in this project. I think that APRALO would like to pilot captioning of one or two webinars organized within the framework of APRALO-APAC HUB. We are planning to have another webinar during January-February period, and Silvia from staff is very much involved in the process. So, we can work with Silvia and APAC HUB staff to pilot this for one or two of our webinars.

Once again congratulations

Seasonal greetings from my side of the world as well to all of you.

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<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+FY16+Special+Budget+Request+for+a+Pilot+program+for+real+time+captioning+of+Adobe+Connect+Workspace> 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 participating?
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<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Captioning+Pilot+Project>.

Thank you for your support in the planning and implementation of this exciting project.

Kind regards
Judith Hellerstein

At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group lead and
NARALO Secretary
