The vision is to “pilot-test” ICANN’s capability to increase the accessibility of Policy development activities by providing real-time captioning service on existing At-Large community meeting calls. The concept is to test a potential new/additional vendor (Caption First) who, it is believed, can provide captioning capability at levels comparable to our current transcript provider in real-time at substantially lower prices.
Targeted nine (9) pilot-test call effort over the course of several months concluding with a staff assessment and recommendation at the end of the test.
