Empowering the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Closed Captioning services are providing a much-needed lifeline to deaf and hard of hearing individuals, allowing them to access critical media content that would otherwise be inaccessible. By providing a text-based translation of the audio, a third-party captioning service can provide those with hearing impairments the same access to audio-based content as their hearing peers. This can include television shows, movies, educational videos and lectures, and even video calls and conferences.
