Let the FCC Know Your Experience with Local News Captioning!

Let the FCC Know Your Experience with Local News Captioning!
August 27, 2015
Do you watch your local news with captions? If so, we need your input! It’ll take just a few minutes and will help guide the future of national accessibility laws for closed captioning.

As part of its landmark closed caption quality initiative, the Federal Communications Commission is examining the quality of closed captions for live news programming in local markets, particularly in smaller markets that use the Electronic Newsroom Technique (ENT) for captions. HLAA in collaboration with the FCC, the National Association of Broadcasters, and TDI (Telecommunications for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing) and NAD (National Association of the Deaf) is launching a consumer survey to examine the quality of ENT captioning on local news programming.

If you watch local news with captions, please take 10 minutes to fill out the following survey:

The results will be included as part of a report to the FCC that will factor into possible changes around the legal rules for news captioning.

We’d be grateful for your support if you could take the survey and share your experience with us; it will help us in our efforts in working with FCC to improve local news captioning!
