The Opry offers captions for the hearing impaired

I found this piece of news interesting today.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Grand Ole Opry remains steeped in a tradition of sound, but the 83-year-old country music program will offer captions for the hearing impaired for the first time Saturday.

About 450 people participating at the Hearing Loss Association of America convention in Nashville this week will attend one of the Opry's evening shows and will be able to follow along with captions on large projection screens.

Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Hal Ketchum, Little Jimmy Dickens and others are set to perform.

(oh, and a very nice lineup listed there for the show this weekend!)
