HUM Law introduces closed captions for all meetings as an essential service

COVID-19 has affected diversity and inclusion in the workplace and corporations need to do more to ensure equal access to products and services.

TORONTO – January 19, 2020 – For millions of Canadians who suffer hearing loss screen captions provide an essential service. Hum Law is happy to announce complete access to closed captioning for all virtual meetings. Further, HUM Law Firm challenges all corporate uses of video conferencing systems, whether, Zoom, GoToMeeting, Skype, Teams, and Blue Jeans amongst the myriad of suppliers to implement Closed Captioning when requested.

“We encourage both law firms and other organizations to ensure they are compliant with provincial accessibility standards,” says HUM Law Firm Founder Lai-King Hum. “Where accessibility during COVID-19 is concerned, we must be more inclusive now that meetings and court appearances have gone virtual.”

Implementing such services not only ensures accessibility, but it also ensures all clients receive the same service standards.
