Accessibility for Travellers

No matter where we go, issues of accessibility exist for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. Travelling seems to be an area where this can be especially difficult for people that have hearing impairments. Airlines have safety announcements, but most are verbal and visual and lack key points for someone that may not be able to hear. Some airlines do have their safety procedures on video and captioned, which is the basic minimum, we think.

Recently one of our team was in Vienna, Austria, and saw that they have captioning AND signing on their information screens for users! Way to go, Austria! North American transit systems could really learn from what is happening in Vienna and implement something similar for people on this continent. Check out the video on our YouTube Channel.

IR Broadcast Captioning provides a wealth of services to allow accessibility in different areas. Our core area of service is providing Remote CART Services for students in educational environments, such as university, college and high school.
