Closed captioning has been a big part of my life. I’ve acted as a developer, writer, advocate, volunteer, and consultant in the field. My website will never be a definitive compilation of my captioning work (that’s what the books are for), but this page will tie together some of the captioning resources I’ve had a hand in.
In this talk, titled “Does Closed Captioning Still Serve Deaf People,” I addressed quality issues, caption law, and the mainstreaming of television captioning.
I’ve written three books about closed captioning. The Closed Captioning Handbook is the most recent and the most comprehensive.
A good chunk of my career centered around designing closed captioning software and equipment. This is also where you can find my patents and TDI award information.
I’ve written over 50 articles and columns about captioning, covering law, technology, history, standards, and advocacy.
