  10. NPR Live-Captioned Radio http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70Mx8FnDd6g&feature=player_embedded How Live-Captioned Radio Works To create live-captioned radio, a broadcast is fed from NPR headquarters to Towson University, where voice writers are listening on headphones and continually re-speaking everything that they hear. That audio output is fed to a caption editor who corrects and formats the information for readability before is the captions are transmitted to consumers. All this occurs within 20 seconds of the live broadcast. Captions are currently available on the program providers' websites, but in the future will be available through NPR Member Station websites as well. The team also wanted to make the content available for the deaf-blind, so they converted the captioning feed for use with stand-alone Refreshable Braille Displays.

  11. General Communication Tips – Let others know: • Best way to get your attention • Which ear is best • Where the speaker is, so you are facing or tuned in his/her direction (without drawing attention to you) • Tell you when they leave the room. Put you in touch with a table, chair, wall, etc. – don’t leave you in an open space. • To let you know if the volume of your voice is too low or too loud. (ask them to think of a volume control button - draw a line up your arm if you are speaking too soft; a line down your arm if speaking too loud. • Let you know if there is feedback on your hearing aid. • Reconfirm important points.

  12. Communication in a Restaurant • Call ahead and ask for booth with high back. • If there is no booth, ask for a table in the quietest part of the restaurant so your back may be against a wall. • Ask to be seated away from kitchen and front door. • Ask if wait staff can assist you: • Reading menu • Buffet line • Cut your meat before serving it to you

  13. Large-print menus Braille menus • If the restaurant is too dim to see what’s on your plate, try using some type of portable lighting. • Book lights • Stand lights • Flash Lights Get a model which can be adjusted to stand on the table and direct its light onto your plate, and which folds for carrying in your pocket or purse. Illinois Dept. on Aging April 22, 2014 Helen Keller National Center-Paige Berry

  14. Community Events • Ask if the speaker will be using a microphone system • Ask if an Assistive Listening Device is available • If not, ask if you can bring your own ALD and if the speaker will wear it • Ask speaker to repeat questions from the audience when applicable • Ask to be seated near the person speaking, or next to the speaker where the sound comes out • Ask for an interpreter when applicable • If requesting an interpreter – let the host know if you prefer ASL, PSE, or MCE. • Let the host know if you need tactile, close vision, or another method of interpreting • Be a teacher to others in the community regarding your communication needs.

  15. A Communication “TO DO” List • Say the person’s name to get their attention before speaking. • Speak slowly, clearly, and directly to the person. • Avoid shouting (it distorts understanding). • Speak in low tones. (Hearing loss usually affects high-range sounds first.) • Do not speak from another room. • Move away from background noise (a stereo, open window, TV, running water, competing conversations, etc.). • Try using different phrases with the same meaning if the person is not understanding what is being said. • Don’t eat or chew gum in case the consumer is trying to read your lips. • Keep your hands away from your mouth. • Get on the same eye level if possible. • Allow more "processing" time before moving on to the next topic.
