Twenty percent of the population has some degree of hearing loss. Encourage business owners and staff to keep the captions on their televisions turned on and accessible to all patrons. Captions also help children with reading and adults learning English as a second language. Not sure how to turn them on? Find the button with two C’s on the remote. Or go to the menu button. Paid for by the Minnesota Commission of the Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing, the Minnesota Broadcasters Association and this station.
