Closed captioning in online video
The Wall Street Journal, of all places, has a detailed article about online video and the lack of closed captioning.
Though television networks and movie studios are rapidly expanding into Internet distribution, few online videos offer the closed captioning that companies are required by law to offer to TV viewers. (link, will expire in about seven days)
Unlike TV broadcasts, closed captions are not mandatory for online video, and the major broadcasters are currently choosing not to provide them for the shows they are putting online.
As a result, online video represents a step backward for hearing-impaired viewers–it’s essentially unusable.
I expect that this loophole will be closed rather swiftly.
