It offers suggestions of best practices of providing American Sign Language interpreters for events, planning ahead, finding interpreters, signing a contract, reaching an audience.

Accessible Films & Video
This file (updated 5-20-19) lists selected cinemas that may offer accessibility accommodations such as captioning or audio described tracks on films and videos they show. The film must come with a captioning or audio description track, and the cinema must have equipment to project these films and listening systems (receivers, headphones, earbuds) for patrons to access the captions or description. Be sure to check with them in advance to be sure they know what you need and that they have the proper equipment.
