Every few months, I like to explore professions that are adjacent to programming.
Today we're exploring captioning and its impact on our industry.

Our guide for this industry is the fabulously giften Norma Miller of White Coat Captioning.
I was captivated by her work at last year's React Rally and wanted to share with you what I learned from her.

Her company does primarily technical events, which gives her an interesting vantage point into tech conference culture.
We talk about typing in excess of 300 words a minute with 98% accuracy,
The $6000 keyboards that make it little easier,
And the open source that powers it.

I think you love this chat, as we learn how captioners are making our technical events more multi-cultural, accessible, and inclusive.
