PBS Political Captioning

The PBS NewsHour will use volunteers to caption its election coverage, thanks to funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). A $420,000 grant will be used for the project, set to launch Tuesday night (Jan 24) with the President's State of the Union address. Besides providing captioning for the deaf, the funds will be used for translation into dozens of languages including Dutch and Chinese.
