We should look for an event sponsorship.
 
I believe that insurance companies, cochlear implant,  hearign aid and batteries companies would be interested in paid sponsorship publicity.  Manufacturer of deaf material would be interested (alarm system, alarm clock).  Closed-cationing companies for TV also have an interest.  Telecom companies also have interest  (phone companies that provide translation service for Deafs).  It would take some thinking on how much you would charge them.  Not too cheap and beeing caught with low value image.
 
I had a training 15 years ago on this.  I do not know the real values of this.  It went like: 1000$ for a mention, 2000$ for a web link, 5000$ for a big logo...  Then you gather them all, the small and the big ones.  Some will want monopole in their own area, this is more expensive.
 
The idea was to prove them that their target clients will see the add.
 
Workers unions can have money.  It may be possible to target those that hire deaf people, like heavy noise printing industries.

Hi Erika -As Adam explained in his message, it is not possible to have a transcript for captioning in advance of speaking. The transcripts needed for captioning are not a script…it is exactly what was really spoken…so that deaf people or others reading the captions can know what was said, at the exact timed minute it was spoken - 
In the case of your captioning transcript, Erika, I introduced you and I interrupted you and asked you questions…my ramblings have to be captioned too - so the Deaf person reading the captions knows what was said - they can’t read our lips very well - remember I was in a tiny little box most of the time ;-))
So even when reading from a a script, presenters’ transcripts for captioning will be different, because of my asking you questions and the comments we made to each other -
Val ;-)

As for my own, my page has a pdf with the text and the ppt has voice recording of the same. However, I riffed a bit off script in the actual presentation so I can re- write that out.

Hello Natasha -Thank you for this offer of the idea of volunteered time from your students, and also the offer of your time to find grants and donations to make it happen. This is wonderful.
Sounds like a fun project for them, and very valuable for everyone all around. And a good educational project for your students as well, because they will be learning the techniques of the technology, plus learning the information from the presentations they are captioning…It is a win-win kind of project…
So we will need to work as a team with you Natasha, since our organization needs to provide you with the videos to caption, and to give you information as to what needs to be captioned next and so forth…
So yes, let’s work together… the information will be coming...
And thanks for all you do too!
Val ;-)

I have had great success getting students involved in projects in the past.  Perhaps the editing and captioning is something I could get a group of middle school students to work on as a service learning project?  I will also try to involve other teachers with ASL students and Deaf and Hard of Hearing students to join us.  Contact me with details and I will work on grants and donations to make this happen over this school year!

Thanks for doing all you do!

Dear SignWriting List -



Our non-profit organization here in the US generally runs on a shoestring…in other words…very little money …we just manage from month to month and year to year and we are still here 40 years later!



So we plan to stay around another 40 years at least - so no worries ;-)



But at least for me, it is more fun to write sign language than to write grants - I am sure you all agree?



That does not mean I have not done my share of grant writing - I have. And we have hired grant writers before too…but generally we have survived on small donations from family, friends, and local small grants…



Well, maybe the SignWriting Symposium can help us raise funds. Because with more funding we can reach more people and do more cool projects! ;-)



Right now we need funding to pay for captioning 32 hours of video, and probably create some smaller videos from the larger ones - so that each presentation has its own individual video which will be placed on your Presentation web pages…




If you know of anyone interested in helping, please tell them about this web page:



Donate to SignWriting Symposium

http://www.signwriting.org/donate



I am still creating the materials to explain why the funding is needed, but I think anyone can figure out that 32 hours of video is a lot of video, and captioning it will take a team of people -



For those who have already created your transcripts of your own presentations - thank you! Your donation of time is much appreciated -



Val ;-)
