And they were just so good?  Tell us about it!   We'd like to send a shout-out on our socials to the outstanding effort being made to make the experience inclusive to those with hearing loss. 

    Submit a short blurb with how the accessibility enhanced your experience, along with a photo or 3-5 second video of the captions (if allowed by the venue/artist), and send it to us via social media DM or to our email at info@speechtotextcaptioning.org.
