  1. Yea, but they use fandango, and always shows the message “says there are no captioned movies.” results for Grand Rapids and Lansing, where the theatre I work for shows RWC movies, so technically, it doesn’t work for me, pretending our theatres don’t exist :)
    (It’s because our company works with a competitor to Fandango, and Fandango doesn’t display our captioned movies as captioned. Movietickets.com does.)

  2. So many of us deaf and retired folks live in small, out of the way communities, where >nothing< is offerred. We cannot even find a decent interpreter! It seems like the theatres would try harder to show captioned films when we are a community of mostly HOH, older and retired citizens.

    About the only solustion for us is to join Netflix or some such, but that is not a perfect solution, either!

  3. That solution means that I would have to break my neck cleaning house, washing windows, etc. And what about the refreshments?

    Since the big screen t.v. would be for a hearing impaired group, perhaps I could deduct the cost from my income tax?! Hee, hee.

    Thanks, anyway.

  4. I know my area theatre shows open caption but always limit time and titles. I prefer watch movies or programs from websites, which I miss to watch on TV, It is NO CLOSED CAPTIONED. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and other networks do not put closed caption back in what we use to watch CC on TV. Let shout the legislation to mandate all networks in website must provide CLOSED CAPTION (CC).

  5. I can see my old webmastering in the deaf access films site. I aint complaining. But its nice to see it being used.

    • Hi Bill and Richard,

      I’m the owner of DeafAccessFilms.com I am not aware of Richard Roehm. I openly use open source code and code snippets to build and operate my site. I’m self taught. (And clearly lacking in expertise :( )

      I don’t know Mr. Roehm and I don’t find Mr. Roehm’s name associated with any of the software I use to create or operate my site, so I’m not sure what he is referring to. It seems like he intends to be somewhat complimentary, but also to be trying to take some credit for being a webmaster with us. This latter suggestion is not true.

      thanks,

      Greg

  8. WARNING ON BUYING NEW TELEVISIONS IF YOU NEED CLOSED CAPTIONING!!!!! SOME NEW TV’S WILL NOT GIVE YOU CLOSED CAPTIONING ON HD STATIONS VIA SATELLITE.

    Two and 1/2 years ago my son bought me a 42″ Panasonic Television. Shortly afterwards I realized I needed closed caption due to my loss of hearing. Satellite providers and cable companies could not supply closed captioning. They said I needed to talk to Panasonic. Panasonic said “You didn’t buy a television set you only bought a monitor.” Because of the great cost in producing large TV’s they were taking shortcuts and leaving the tuners out since everyone would be getting their service from cabel or satallite companies. Fortunately my son had bought the TV at Costco which at the time had a lifetime satisfaction guarantee on TV’s. (They don’t anymore). A year and a half ago we returned the “monitor” to Costco and bought a brand new 42″ inch TELEVISION SET (not monitor). I was using cable at the time but I recently decided to try Satellite. I found out that the new Panasonic Television Set could not supply me with Closed Captioning on HD channels via Satellite. So I have returned to Cable for this service. Panasonic acknowledges that something to do with the cables that are necessary to bring in Satellite.

  10. FINALLY, a movie in the theater that is fully Close Caption! I walked in on the movie “Battle Los Angeles” and to my surprise it was Closed Captioned just like if I was at home. It is about time! Why all movies can’t be closed caption in the theater is beyond me. People watching the screen never have any comments or complaints when the subjects in the movie talk a foreign language that is captioned for their sake…like “Letters From Iwo Jima” why, the whole movie was in Japanese!
    Lets hope this is a step in the right direction!!!!!
