>> Dear All,
>> On behalf of Judith Hellerstein, At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group
>> lead and NARALO's Secretary, we are pleased to announce that the FY 16
>> At-Large Captioning Pilot Project<
>> will start in January 2016.
>> The captioning will be provided by "Caption First Incorporated".
>> As agreed to by the At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group, the
>> implementation of this project will be structured as follows:
>> * Three calls to include captioning each month for a total of 9
>> teleconferences, not exceeding 60 minutes per call (with the exception of
>> the ALAC Monthly Meeting)
>> * The calls shall be held between January - April 2016.
>> * During the first pilot phase of this captioning project the language
>> used will be English.
>> * In order to select the calls the captioning team has developed a set
>> of criteria to evaluate and rate the requests. The request for captioning
>> must meet at least one of these criteria to be put on the list.
>> Criteria for Captioning:
>> 1) Are there persons with disabilities or with limited bandwidth
>> 2) Are there webinars of general interest to the ICANN community that
>> would increase the engagement of non-native English speakers?
>> 3) Are the meetings or discussions about accessible tools or software?
>> If you would like to have a teleconference captioned during this pilot
>> phase please submit your request to At-Large Staff<mailto:
>> staff at atlarge.icann.org> by January 15th.
>> * The At-Large Captioning Pilot Project group, in collaboration with
>> At-Large Staff, will select the calls that will have captioning based on
>> the criteria noted above.
>> * A short poll will be made at the end of each call where captioning
>> is used to ask for feedback on the captioning program during that call.
>> See further details Wiki: At-Large Captioning Pilot Project<
>> Thank you for your support in the planning and implementation of this
>> exciting project.
