Video shows state of online captioning in the US

Tuesday, 18 May 2010 16:07pm

Spreety TV is an American website which provides a guide to all the TV shows which have been made available for viewing online by the networks there, including whether they are available with captions. It has produced a number of short videos which can be watched on YouTube, including Closed Captioning for Online TV.

Although the programs themselves aren’t available for viewing in Australia for copyright reasons, the video gives a good idea of the current levels and quality of online captioning in the US.

In Australia, the ABC is the only network offering captions on online videos, on their iView player.
