The “Lipreading Mom” is Shanna Groves, who has three children aged 7-10.  She’s the author of the book “Lip Reader.” Recently she started a campaign to contact various TV networks about having captions on all their website videos.

The Lipreading Mom’s Captions Campaign has a web page at http://lipreadingmom.com/lipreading-mom-captions-campaign/ with suggestions for becoming involved.  There’s a draft letter and you can adapt and some links to send an email to TV networks – CNN, FOX, MSNBC, ABC, The 700 Club, TheWeatherChannel, BBC and ESPN.

You’ll also find some updates of actions Shanna has taken with these networks.

Shanna thanks the Collaborative for Communication Access via Captioning (CCAC) and its volunteers for their time and efforts with the campaign. You can learn more about CCAC at http://www.ccacaptioning.org/
