Making Foreign Language Programming Easier to Find

City Cable 13

  The DC Council sometimes invites testimony in oversight hearings in languages other than English. We have created a web page highlighting the recent oversight hearings with testimony given in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. The program listing includes time code for easier navigation. We have a new web page that jumps to these hearings.

Washington, DC is a diverse, multi-cultural city and OCTT acknowledges this diversity by translating some of its educational programming into the Spanish Language. OCTT has created Spanish versions of two episodes of its award winning show City Line, "Community Nutrition" and "Nutrition Labels" which have Spanish language voice tracks. We have a new web page that jumps to these shows.
