Closed captioning, open captioning, and subtitles display the audio portion of a program as text on a TV screen or in a movie theater, providing a critical link to entertainment, news, and information for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
Millions of television viewers in the United States use closed-captions and subtitles. Per the FCC, Congress requires video programming distributors — cable operators, broadcasters, satellite distributors, etc. — to close caption their TV programs, with few exceptions.
