Radio For The Deaf

Radio For The Deaf

Radio For The Deaf started out as an idea: How can the deaf enjoy a radio talk show?

It took some engineering, but thanks to the innovation of Facebook Live the idea became practical. It turned into a reality when Connecticut Public Radio partnered with Hartford’s American School For The Deaf and Source Interpreting to broadcast our live talk shows, such as The Colin McEnroe Show, in American Sign Language, as a simulcast on Facebook Live.

Today, Radio For The Deaf is a Facebook Live experience executed on Switcher Studio and through an arsenal of iPads.

But it’s growing.

We are committed to tweak, improve, and enhance our entire Radio For The Deaf experience. What started as an experiment has become a full-fledged project for Connecticut Public Radio, and we want to make our execution better. But we need your help.

What do you think of Radio For The Deaf? How can we improve upon what we’ve started? What do you want us to do to in order to deliver our content directly to you?
