ABC's iView now has captions

Wednesday, 31 March 2010 11:28am

From today, all primetime ABC1 and ABC2 programs available on the iView player can be watched with captions. The captions are in a very readable font, and are activated by clicking on a ‘CC’ tab in the right hand corner of the screen.

Programs currently screening on iView include Four Corners, Australian Story, Lateline and Q&A, as well as overseas programs like The Wire and The Daily Show. The captions are the same as those shown on the original television broadcast of the program, so programs captioned live will still have those live captions on the iView.

This is a significant step forward in making online video content accessible in Australia.
