>WHICH JOB IS MORE STRENUOUS?
>   Which job (serving the deaf) is more strenuous - sign language
>interpreter or a real-time captioning reporter? The DEAFDIGEST editor
>always makes it a point to request two interpreters each time he needs
>an interpreter. And if only one interpreter shows up he will make it an
>issue with the sponsoring agency.
>   Now what about real-time captioning reporter? Is it strenuous? Very
>certainly so. If the news is fast paced or if the meetings proceed in
>a rapidlike fashion, then the reporter needs to catch a breather. If breaks
>are not given or if there are no back up reporters then spelling errors
>will show up on the screen.
>   Remember that interpreters and real time captioners are human and
>deserve timely breaks.

>MCGWIRE'S NON-CAPTIONED HOME RUN
>   It was reported in last week's DEAFDIGEST that one of McGwire's
>historic homers, was not closed captioned when broadcast on the
>ESPN network.
>   DEAFDIGEST subscribers have reported that other non-ESPN networks
>have closed captioned his homers. One Canadian subscriber said "I am
>grateful that TSN is more accessible to the deaf in Canada."
