The Dangers of Poorly Captioned Broadcasts

The FCC averages around 500 closed captioning quality complaints per year. Imagine the level of frustration felt by the hearing impaired person that actually takes the time to register a complaint.

FCC Captioning Quality Improvements

The FCC unanimously voted to adopt new standards for closed captioning on television programming. The new rules are meant to ensure the best efforts of video programming distributors to improve closed captioning quality. The new standards focus on quality improvement to post-produced closed captioning in four specific areas: accuracy, synchronicity, completeness and placement.
