Buckeye Captioning

Ohio State now including captioning during its football games on scoreboards and stadium televisions to help the deaf. The new service began with the teams opening game against Illinois. It includes all public-address announcements and play descriptions, as well as calls by the officials. The National Association of the Deaf got the school moving on the issue when it sued this year on behalf of Buckeye fan Vincent Sabino.
