Deaf Australia is setting up a Captioning Working Group.
We want to bring together like-minded organisations and community groups to work co-operatively to:
- Work as a unified front to address captioning issues across various media formats
- Undertake campaigns to promote increased access to captioned content suitable for Deaf and hard of hearing people in various media formats
- Keep abreast of research and identify best practice for delivery of captioning.
The following organisations and community groups have been invited to send a representative to the Working Group: Deaf Australia, Deaf Victoria, Deafness Forum, AOCA, Media Access Australia and Arts Access Victoria.
We are also calling for Expressions of Interest for two independent community representatives to join the Working Group. Please see the Expressions of Interest document and the Terms of Reference and send your EOI in English or in Auslan to firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th April 2013.Download the EOI Document (PDF 87KB) Download the Terms of Reference (PDF 100KB)
