Requirement for a Closed Captioning

Organizations such as the ‘Telecommunications Act of 1996’ and the ‘Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’ have mandated to caption any video program. There are further guidelines established to be followed while captioning. All programming distributors should deliver (pass-through) broadcast captions even for already captioned productions.

Every captioned video is checked for its compliance and ‘counted’ for adhering to the rules. For example, commercials for five minutes and less are not required for “video programming” and thus, unnecessary for captioning. Some business sectors also have captioning voluntarily to expand viewership on a global basis.
