Actual Signs gives Deaf Awareness training to Red Bee

07 Feb 2010

Actual Signs has recently been involved in rolling out Deaf Awareness training to employees of Red Bee Media in Glasgow and Newcastle. Red Bee Media work with the major broadcasters and are in the business of connecting people with television and of course, making television content accessible to everyone. That is why they asked Actual Signs to deliver Deaf Awareness training to their staff and educate them on the deaf community in the UK, effective communication with deaf people and deaf culture. The group also discussed subtitling and live captioning on television for deaf and hard of hearing viewers and were delighted to have the opportunity to talk about what is important for viewers who use this regularly
