Joining In… Why Captioning ALL TV Programmes is Important. “100% captioning isn’t just about entertainment and watching TV. It’s about access to information and providing a tool that makes it easier for Deaf and hearing impaired people to join in and participate with everyone else.”

Some people may wonder about the current campaign for 100% captions on TV. Is it really an important issue? It’s just TV programmes. Aren’t there more important things to worry about? Besides, some programmes are already captioned. Shouldn’t that be enough? So why do so many Deaf and hard of hearing people think it is important? I don’t like to assume I can speak for others, but to me it’s.
