Enjoy the videos and please share with those who could benefit from having this critically important information available captioned in their language.
Newcomers, and people whose first language is not English, tell us that when they read the captions in their language, they can more easily absorb and retain the information. And when they read the captions in their language and hear the spoken English in the background, it helps them to improve their English-language skills.
In *any* language, captions can help those with hearing barriers, or who are accessing the videos in a noisy environment or in an environment where sound is not permitted. Reading captions also helps some people more easily understand and remember key concepts. Finally, captions are often helpful to those who struggle with literacy as they can hear the spoken English and see the written words.
We are pleased to be able to offer our video content in this format!
We thank the Vancouver Foundation for recognizing the importance of adding captions and translations to KIDCARECANADA videos, and for their financial support!
