This Week’s Captions: Live From SXSW

THIS WEEK’S SHOW:
This week on Latino USA we are back where it all began – Austin, Texas. We bring you a show recorded live at KUT’s Studio 1A where two Tejana sisters tell one crazy true story in two languages. We find out why being Latino can actually be an asset when it comes to a career in technology. We meet a DJ whose multicultural background makes him fearless about crossing genres. An old friend joins us to talk about the history of Latino USA and the role of Austin in it. And one of Austin’s most creative characters drops in to teach us about sound.

ABOUT CAPTIONING:
Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio. “Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”
The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.
