Ava – Your 24/7 Captioner to Launch Sept 5th

AVA app

HLAAKC met the AVA Founders in St Louis 2015 and Washington DC June 2016!  Get ready for their launch.

On September 5th, Ava will be free to download for anyone with an Android or iPhone. This means that your chapter members will be among the first people to get the opportunity to install the app (free of charge) on their own mobile device.

Why is this a great opportunity?

If you haven’t heard about Ava yet (check our website here), it’s a mobile application to empower deaf or hard of hearing people in group conversations. The app pairs smartphones in a room and captures the conversation to show a real time, color coded transcript of the discussion. In other words, you obtain real time captioning on your smartphone!

Ava is made to give you audio & visual accessibility, anywhere, anytime. This means that your next Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner doesn’t have to be a hassle anymore. It means that you can speak with your son, daughter, or maybe your grandchild, without missing all the details.

You might have seen us at the HLAA convention in DC this year or in St. Louis a year ago? Or perhaps you’ve heard about us through your local chapter? We are proud and very thankful to the fellow HLAA members and leaders who have believed in us since the early days, and have become true Ava pioneers.

You and your chapter members can be the next people to join the movement, by trying the app and advocating for a future with 24/7 accessibility!

Are you and your chapter ready to become pioneers?

If you are interested in joining your fellow HLAA members to become an Ava pioneer, and want to give the Ava app a try, here are a few things you can already do today:

1) First, save the date. On September 5th, you can download the app for free on the App and Play store. Make sure you mark this date in your calendar.

2) Inform the people around you. If you are a chapter representative or leader, we prepared an announcement message that you can share with your chapter members, or include in your monthly newsletter. This message can be found at the bottom of this email. You can also send the message or forward this email to anyone you know who would be interested in learning about Ava.

3) Get priority, by visiting our website (www.ava.me) and leaving your email. We will invite you to our pioneer program directly, and you’ll be the first to know about any updates.

We look forward to launching Ava together with you!

Greatest greetings,
Team Ava.

Captioning and LOOPing News

Alamo Drafthouse KC runs OC movie every Sunday afternoon and every Tuesday afternoon.   There has been some Tuesdays combined with Baby Day so deaf/hoh parents can bring their infants to enjoy (OC) with house lights up to help look in the baby bag for items and the sound is lowered.  Check it out while enjoying food/beverage ordered from your seat. No hassles of leaving to get popcorn refills.

Download ‘AMC Theatres” from the Play Store or iTunes.  Watch for OC movies on Saturday afternoon AND EVERY Tuesday afternoon.

AMC Theatres is introducing open captioning on some Saturday afternoons and soon a weekday (not Tuesdays), but will find a different weekday afternoon.   They will also be trying to show (OC)  at AMC two locations.  One location will be AMC Olathe 28.  The other location is to be determined,  Independence or at BarryWoods.   AMC often runs surveys to find out what titles you would like to see in (OC) .  Please “Like” our Facebook for future (OC) surveys and (OC) event details.

PLEASE NOTE:  AMC cancelled the OC movies scheduled for Saturday, Sept 27th  Due to an unexpected incident.  The General Manager been out of the office since Monday through Thursday and unfortunately this will cause a delay in the planned event Sept 27th.  AMC is very sorry for the short notice and are discussing  a potential alternative for the foreseeable future.
Sometimes we post (OC) movies on hlaakc.com.   We try to inform you how to use the movie theater’s mobile apps to look for (OC) movies.   Alamo’s app is searchable for (OC) by changing the Experience filter to OC, however, Alamo’s website is not searchable for OC.

AMC’s app and website are not searchable for only (OC) movies.  If you would like to advocate for movie  theaters to change so we can search for (OC) movies, please consider messaging them on their Facebook pages.    See example of how to advocate.

AMC will offer the following movies in Open Captioning if OC comes with the film:

Sat., Aug 6th – STAR TREK BEYOND

Sat., Aug 27th – THE SPACE BETWEEN US or BEN HUR

Two Locations most likely AMC Olathe 28 and

Two Locations most likely AMC Olathe 28 and

HLAA-KC would like people (hearing, deaf, hard of hearing) in Metropolitan KC area to take a survey to help us understand what your preference is on a few issues and size of auditorium we will need.

The exact time the movie starts will be determined later, but we will adjust start time to allow people to get to the Royal’s game or get home before the game starts to watch on TV.

Please take a few moments to answer each survey once per household & only if you live in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. Each survey has 2 questions.
