Majority of #deaf and #hardofhearing people prefer OPEN #captions directly on a screen in movie #theaters, but they are often forced to use cumbersome closed captioned devices against their will because some hearing folks are complaining how open captions are “distracting” to them.
So we are doing a survey on preferences for open vs closed captions that can be filled out by anyone regardless of hearing status. We even encourage more folks with normal hearing to fill out the survey so that we can show more comments directly from them instead of letting theaters making assumptions for them.
Please fill out the survey and pass it on as wide as possible. Thanks!
NOTE: Please respond to questions in the survey, not in comments in this post – otherwise they will be deleted.
