  • Video is nice, but is useless when there is no subtitles to go along with it – not everyone who views or is part of DSMA is of the hearing population of the world (or has active speakers for that matter).

    Same goes for a voice chat, its nice for those who can hear but when your world is silence it holds no interest when you can’t follow along without having to rely on someone who can tell you what is being said.

    • Thank you for sharing this AP. We received feedback from members of the diabetes community with vision issues regarding our videos. The full text of the videos are located on the youtube pages. Currently we only use sound for background music.

      As we continue to reassess our options for letting the community know about the weekly activities, we will do our best to make sure ALL members of the community are included.
