  1. With modern technology wouldn’t it be easier and more efficent to broadcast with livestream, google+, youtube or another streaming service? I believe those sites could provide closed captioning for those with disabilities that effect their hearing.

    Thank you for visiting our blog! Although I agree that it might be easier and more efficient to broadcast through more modern applications such as livestream, google+, and/or other streaming services, it really is not up to NARIC on how the White House Disability Group shares these calls/broadcasts the information. We at NARIC are happy to share the information that these calls are going on and what we learn as we listen in. I do know that the White House and the White House Disability Group do stream plenty of disability related information via google+, Twitter, etc. I would suggest emailing the disability group at disability@who.eop.gov to learn more. Thank you again!
