Another option is to use an external closed captioning decoder like the
v-gis DV-1 A/V, that can be used on projectors, Plasma TVs, HDTVs, +
Audio/Video Input/Output Type devices (DVD, VCR, Sat): see
www.v-gis.com. Of course, you'd have to take into account whether or not
it would be more cost effective to acquire the Epson projector you're
looking at. However, with an external decoder, you wouldn't be locked
into choosing a specific device just because it has a decoder - you may
like a different model/brand for various reasons: i.e. supportability by
your tech dept., security concerns (i.e. ease of installing anti-theft
eqpt to ceiling or cart), dependability, cost of bulbs, etc.

Subject: [Athen] Multimedia Projector and Captioning

We are trying to buy a Multimedia Projector for doing presentations for
our Disability Resource Center here at UIC. I found out that Epson has
a projector that has built in closed captioning capability. It is
called the PowerLite 83c. I am trying to wrap my brain around how this
works on a practical level. Has anyone used one? It is heavier than
the one I was looking at from Dell but if it has a tremendous advantage
for the hearing impaired, I would look into us buying it.

Thank you for any feedback,
