The need for closed captioning
As per a Federal Law under the provisions of The Telecommunications Act, initiated by the FCC in 1996, it is mandatory as of 1st of January 2006 for all broadcasters to include closed captioning features into all English programming.
According to a recent study, it is estimated that there are twenty-seven million people in the United States who suffer from hearing deficiency, and people with this disability rely on closed captioning in television programs, videos and films.
Apart from this, there is a vast section of the American population who is not native English speaking, and for these immigrants, closed captioning programming enhances their English learning capabilities.
