Hi, my name is Debbie Hardwicke with the Captioned Media Program (CMP). 

 

Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, th= e Captioned Media Program (CMP) provides free-loan, open-captioned videos to deaf and hard of hearing persons.  More than 4,000 titles including classic movies, educational videos, and special-interest videos are available.  Some Spanish-language captioned media is available.  Our Web site (www.cfv.org ) is also translated into Spanish.  Some media is also delivered through Internet streaming.  Open-captioned videos, like subtitles, provide the viewer all the information contained in the audio track. It's free to register for service and to check out videos.  The CMP is administered by the National Association of the Deaf.

 

The mission of the Captioned Media Program (CMP) is to provide all persons who are deaf or hard of hearing awareness of and equal access to communication and learning through the use of captioned educational media and supportive collateral materials. Entering the twenty-first century, the ultimate goal of the CMP is to permit media to be an integral part in the lifelong learning process for all stakeholders in the deaf and hard of hearing community: adults, students, parents, and educators.

 

In addition to offering English and Spanish captioned videos for the deaf and hard of hearing, the CMP program is a clearinghouse for information relating to captioning and other deafness-related topics.  We are the first and only organization to provide a Captioning Key which outlines the proper guidelines for captioning.  It is well-recognized in the captioning community.  Currently, we have the following CMP Captioning Key, as well as, other informational materials available in Spanish:  catalog, brochure, and flyers.

 

The Captioned Media Program is a perfect resource that goes hand-in-hand with the growing need for education programs that take into account the specific linguistic and academic challenges faced by America's English language learners - especially those that are deaf and hard of hearing.

 

We would like for you to list us a resource provided on your Website's Links & Resources page.

Thanks for any help you can provide.  Our focus areas are:  deaf, hard of hearing, education, videos, free, governmentally funded...

 

In addition, we understand your expertise and technical assistance could help our program. 

We would like to know how you could help us ge= t these informational materials out to the deaf Latino community.  And we would like to network with you to help the deaf Latino community be more aware of the free resources, primarily the Captioned Media Program., that are available to them.

 

Can you tell us how you can help us in the following areas relating to deafness and the Latino community:  1) translation; 2) cataloging 3) proofing; 4) captioning; and 5) consulting?  Do you know of any individuals in mind that would be terrific recommendations for any of the above tasks?  We are always looking for highly competent, dependable individuals to help us meet the needs of the deaf Latino individuals in the U.S.  One of the most prominent deaf leaders, Tomas Garcia, Jr., is on the CMP Advisory Board, along with other prominent Latino leaders in the field of deafness.  Garcia is a prime mover for the Captioned Media Program in ensuring the availability of media with Spanish captioning for deaf and hard of hearing students.  All of our Spanish-speaking leaders are tremendous assets to the Captioned Media Program, but with all prominent leaders, their schedules are "full" and their time is "sliced thin".  If you could provide us with the names and contact information for any individuals that you think would be an additional asset to the CMP program, it would be greatly appreciated!

 

One important piece of data we are looking for is the number of children in U.S. schools that come from Latino families (parent(s) are Latino).  Do you have that information?  If not, can you tell us where to obtain it?

 

As you can see, we are in the initial building stages of our services to the Latino deaf community.  We would love to have you as one of the important building blocks in this process.  I look forward to hearing from you soon!
