ACCESS News: Texas School for the Deaf

Via Austin Community Foundation

Goal

To provide news and information to the deaf and hearing impaired through public access television programming and an interactive website

ACCESS News aims to inform and empower the deaf community through public access television and an interactive website featuring the perspectives of the hearing impaired. The project will engage students at Texas School for the Deaf to help produce 20, 30-minute shows annually in spoken English with American Sign Language and English and Spanish captions. The students will gain skills and experience, and contribute to the deaf community’s understanding of local issues, while bringing the perspective of the hearing impaired to the larger community.
