> Dear Technology Task Force Working Group Members,
> I wanted to report the great news that the Special Budget Request that I
> put in has been approved and funded by the ICANN Board. This is really
> great news!! While they did not give us everything we asked for. We had
> requested a one year pilot with a review after 6 months. Instead the board
> approved a 6 month pilot with a review after 3 months to determine
> viability. The goal will be at least three calls/meetings per month to
> determine viability.
> The Pilot will begin October 2015. Also good news is that ICANN has
> recognized that this is not just an ALAC need but a core need for all. It
> is great that ICANN has recognized the value of captioning technology
> during meeting support efforts. I will be working with Heidi Ulrich and
> other staff to figure out how to structure the pilot. Those who are
> interested in working on creating the pilot, please feel free to email me.
> When I have more information I will send another email out but just wanted
> to let everyone know this great news.
