US non-profit group sues CNN.com for uncaptioned online video
CNN.com provides video-on-demand news content to millions of people via their website. The lack of captions means that those who are Deaf or hearing impaired are denied access to this service, instead being forced to wait for news to be aired via traditional television broadcast.
The Disability Rights Advocates who are representing the Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness and three individual plaintiffs are calling the lawsuit the first of its kind.
