Do I have to utilize closed-captioning for my project?

Effective January 1, 2006 The Federal Communications Commission requires 100% of all non-exempt television programming to be closed-captioned (Rules & Regulations 47CFR part 79.1). This same rule will soon be applied to Internet television/videos.

Why is closed-captioning important?

Television closed-captioning provides a critical link to news, entertainment and information for individuals who are hearing-impaired. This service enables these individuals the opportunity to enjoy and be provided with a vital element of the television experience. Closed-captioning has been used to improve comprehension and fluency in languages throughout the world. In addition, studies have shown that closed-captioning has helped children learn to read and has improved literacy skills. Viewers may select to watch closed-captions through their remote controls or on-screen displays.
