    You don’t have to be an athlete to get into this game.  If you’re a captioner who’s been sitting on the sidelines because you don’t know a lot about sports, you’re intimidated by all of the names or you just don’t know where to start to make that transition, then join Amy Bowlen for a glimpse into this already vast and still growing area of sports captioning.

    Let’s talk about why sports captioning is different from other types of broadcast captioning and delve into specific sports topics, such as unique preparation per sport, research sources, differences among levels of competition, i.e., professional versus amateur, college versus high school, team sports versus individual sports and the difference between national network coverage and regional network coverage.

    We’ll also discuss sports terminology, placement of captions and important time considerations when it comes to scheduling yourself for sports programming.

    Attend this webinar, apply what you learn, and before you know it, you’ll be singing, “Put me in, Coach, I’m ready to play.”

    This webinar is proudly sponsored by the NCRA Captioning Community of Interest.
