My name is Megan Matovich. I received my Deaf Studies masters from Gallaudet University. My thesis focused on the numerous benefits of sign language in different aspects of life. The first part is a collaborative project between my mother and myself on our experience with sign language and the Deaf community. The second part is a qualitative case study project involving different deaf students and their academic and language development in sign language, written English, and spoken language. A website was created to share my thesis, www.whysign.com.

"Why Sign?"

For your information

Century 10 and West Acres Cinema in Fargo now feature CAPTIVIEW captioning!   Each theater was given 10 CaptiViews. 

The CaptiView system consists of a small, Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display on a bendable support arm that fits into the theater seat cup holder.  The device receives encrypted closed captions on a wireless band frequency.  (This website http://www.doremilabs.com/products/cinema-products/captiview/ shows what a Captiview units looks like.)

You will need to request the device from the theater’s guest services counter.
