A second stage of the VDEI pilot project enabling the use of captioning in classrooms has involved three more secondary school facilities, Shepparton High School deaf facility, Mount Erin deaf education centre and Sunshine College deaf facility, in terms 3 and 4.
Stage 1 of the project commenced in Term 2, with Ai-Media providing a live captioning service to middle and senior secondary students at the Victorian College for the Deaf and Forest Hill College deaf facility until the end of the year.
Captioning will continue at these settings until the end of term 4. This pilot will be extended to all other government secondary facilities in terms 1 and 2, 2012. For more information, contact Victorian Deaf Education Institute at email@example.com
