Captioning in Healthcare

Our health is a vital aspect of our lives where we rely heavily on communication to understand.  A simple thing like an informative video with captioning on a hospital's website can make a HUGE difference because it grants the deaf community access to the same important information that hearing people have.  


Dotsub.com -- This site allows for subtitles in any language to be added to videos -- More companies, hospitals, and organizations should use this site!   


Example: Piedmont Healthcare in Atlanta


 "If Piedmont in Atlanta can do this, with the help of dotSub.com, then why not all major medical centers – no reason at all."  -- CCAC

  3. Yes, we did & you're welcome! We definitely need more captioning on videos online! So the more the word spreads about Dotsub.com, the better!
