NFL’s Seahawks Captioning 2013 Home Games

Thu, 08/08/2013

In late May, 2013, the Seattle Seahawks announced they will caption their home games this fall at CenturyLink Field.

They are placing captions in two corners of each end zone for all fans to see. The public address system announcements will be displayed as text in these corner scoreboards. 

Currently, the Seahawks are testing the new caption technology at Seattle Sounder Major League Soccer home games. The testing will continue for both Sounder home games and Seahawk pre-season games. 

This is a major change in public venues. Wash-CAP (The Washington Communication Access Project at wash-cap.com) is grateful for the Seahawks for this help. HLAA Member John Waldo was also instrumental in this effort. Please congratulate, as well as support, the Seattle Seahawks efforts. Please pass thank you notes to the Seahawks for this decision.

And thank you to John Waldo for his help!
