 Innovation and Software:
Tools for Realtime and Post-Production Captioning
Professional captioners Jill Rausch, Tanya English and Steve Clark will present this 90-minute webinar. Jill will provide you with an introduction to post-production captioning and the process of adding captions to an event and how to time those captions to match the recording. Tanya English will discuss her software, CaptionTools, and demonstrate how you can quickly and easily create post-production captions. Steve Clark will demo the setup of OBS Studio, a free and open-source software that can be used to add captions to platforms like Facebook Live and Vimeo.
FROM THE CHAIR
 Membership, involvement, commitment.  These are the keys to success for the Global Alliance as we move forward.

To you, our members, thank you for your support of our vision and mission, as well as the important work we’re doing to help ensure quality captioning for all. Membership renewals are going out now, and we are counting on you to renew! Thank you. To grow the Global Alliance, we need you, our members, to reach out to colleagues and friends and tell them about us and why they should join today. Tell them why you joined, why you believe in our vision and mission, and how important it is that they join today! Those of you who are reading this and are not yet members, we thank you for following us, but we need you to join us! Join here.
 
Next, we need you to get involved. A very small group of dedicated members continues to volunteer time on behalf of our association. This must change. We need more member involvement, including volunteers who will serve and do the work of our various committees. We’re all living in a new normal during this pandemic, and we’re all being pushed and stretched in ways we never imagined, but for the Global Alliance to grow and thrive we need more member involvement. Join a committee, reply to our call for Board members, or offer your time in any way you see fit. Contact us now and let us know how you can help. We're counting on your involvement. 
 
On November 20 we will present "Innovation and Software: Tools for Realtime and Post-Production Captioning," the first in a series of webinars. These webinars will be live, but you can also purchase them post-production. You don’t want to miss this webinar! Sign up here.
 
Our website redesign is now complete, and we hope you love the new look as much as we do. This redesign makes our website more accessible for people with disabilities. Included is a membership portal and a directory for consumers to find captioners who are committed to quality captioning. In the long run, this website redesign will also save us money since the website will now be hosted alongside our membership software.
We are counting on you to help us to do the hard work necessary and ensure our growth, through new and renewed membership, as well as through sponsorship. For us to fulfill our vision and mission, it's time for all of us to get involved and ensure the success of the Global Alliance.

Global Alliance and HLAA Work Together to Caption Walks4Hearing

The Global Alliance has shared its time and talent to coordinate and caption the Hearing Loss Association of America’s Walks4Hearing. We captioned 19 Walks this year! Thank you to this amazing team of captioners that helped provide communication access for the Fall Walks. We couldn’t do it without you!

Thank you to our Sponsors! 

Thank you to Nick Wilkie and StreamText.net for donating streaming time for all Global Alliance calls and events, including our upcoming Webinar Series. StreamText.net also donated streaming time for all HLAA Walks4Hearing. Thank you, StreamText.net!
 
Thank you to Jen Schuck and CaptionPros for sponsoring realtime captioning services for the Global Alliance! You make our meetings fully accessible for all our members. Thank you!
