    Captioning give captions of the verbal instruction given by Ty and the R180 crew in the software. Kids can access on their own with Ctrl - A My kids found it by accident but all have tried it!

    I have turned on the captioning for my 2 hearing impaired students and one ESL student.  Debbie

    Thanks for the info!

    My ESL students benefitted from the captions being on.  They could see the words instead of relying on understanding the spoken comments.
