Nampa is home to Northwest Nazarene University, a four-year Christian liberal arts college established in 1913 and the Canyon County campus of Boise State University.
The Snake River Stampede, one of the top 15 professional rodeos in the country, is an 85-year-old institution in Nampa.
Nampa’s other recreational opportunities include seven city parks, Lake Lowell and the Deer Flat National Wildlife Center, two public golf courses and one private nine-hole course, a 140,000-square foot Recreation Center with large indoor climbing wall, five swimming pools, three collegiate size basketball courts and an indoor running track. The Nampa Civic Center is Idaho’s second largest full service Convention Center/Performing Arts Complex. The Idaho Center just off I-84 has an indoor seating capacity of 13,000, making it an ideal site for sports events, trade shows or conferences as well as a variety of world-class entertainment.
If you find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use, speech recognition software such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects. NAR is working on adding transcripts to all scripted video and audio content.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Most of NAR's video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device's volume controls and your media players' volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
