Why would we need to provide both captioning and ASL interpretation? It seems redundant to me.

Susan, great question, we will circle back on this in a bit.

ASL is for individual who are Deaf and who communicate through American Sign Language. This is how many Deaf people communicate. Keep in mind ASL is not signed English, it is its own language. Captioning for those with hearing loss. They serve different groups of people. .

This is helpful. One more question. What is the difference, then, between ASL and International Sign Language? Are they two different languages?
Mary Trigg

Captioning is also helpful for people with processing issues. We are finding this applies to our senior audience, along with hearing loss.
Kirsten Sweeney (she/her)

Yes, those are different languages. There are 100s of different sign languages in the world, all of which are their own language.
