Captions commence on ABC's iView player

Monday, 29 March 2010 14:24pm

From Tuesday 30 March, all ABC1 and ABC2 programs available via the ABC’s iView player will have captions.

The captions will be an optional extra for the service, which has been a great success for the ABC, with 411,000 people visiting it in the month of February. Around the world, the provision of captions on downloadable or streaming video has been very patchy, although the BBC introduced captions on its iPlayer in 2008.
