Paradigm to Provide In-Stadium Closed-Captioning For Minnesota Gopher Football


Minneapolis, MN:  Paradigm Reporting and Captioning Inc. will provide closed-captioning at the new TCF Bank football stadium for all Minnesota Gopher home games in 2009.  The state-of-the-art Jumbotron will display live captions for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing fans to read from the scoreboard, creating for them the ability to “hear” the play-by-play action as well as any in-stadium announcements.    Live captioning grants equal access to communication for those with hearing impairments, an accommodation mandated by the Americans With Disabilities Act.
