About

Caption THIS! is Bill Graham’s blog about captioning. Bill is a deafened adult who depends on captioning to understand audio content. If it isn’t captioned he doesn’t have a clue, even with bilateral cochlear implants. And there are millions of other Americans who are equally clueless. (No offense intended….) Bill co-founded the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA) in 1987. This blog grew out of his role as Director of Advocacy and Education for Alternative Communication Services (ACS). ACS works hard towards a fully captioned society. Enough with the marketing; this is Bill’s blog. Go Bill.

    Dear Sir, I stumbled upon your blog today and I see multiple references where John Waldo of WASCAP claims that Regal Entertainment Group increased access to its facilities nationwide due to his efforts in suing same. While Mr. Waldo is free to believe whatever he wants, however, the facts are that nothing he did (specifically including his lawsuit against Regal), had any impact on Regal’s efforts to offer captioning at all showtimes across the country when films are provided with captions. I advised Mr. Waldo when he filed the suit that we were converting to digital and developing captioning for same. I further advised him that when the digital conversion began, we would be able to increase access nationwide. Regal did just what I told Mr. Waldo we would do, yet he claims his actions led to this access. Mr. Waldo’s lawsuit did nothing but cost Regal money and it continues to do so. Unlike Waldo, Regal invested over ten years worth of time and money to increase access and inspire manufacturers to develop better technologies to assist same and through those efforts, has been able to provide total access.
