Captioning for the deaf, because not all deaf are Deaf.

Blog post by Joyce "Xpressive Hands" Edmiston on the need for captions in worship in addition to ASL interpreters. 

"...The largest growing group of Disabled Americans [are] people with hearing loss. Many don't know Sign Language because their culture is the hearing culture. Their friends, family, social groups and communities do not use ASL. BUT Deaf and hard of hearing and people with hearing loss, as well as people learning English as a second language ALL benefit from having captions."

Happy reading!
