How Public Radio Stations Can Serve Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Audiences

The article, "How public radio stations can serve deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences" talks about how two public radio stations looking to improve the accessibility of their broadcasts for the deaf and hard of hearing have found new ways to provide live captioning of their programming. WAMU in Washington, D.C., is testing an automated speech-to-text technology. KQED in San Francisco is promoting Google Chrome’s Live Caption and is trying to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, which call for captioning of all live audio content.
