The survey was prompted by the fact that the program contains a great deal of visual information which often necessitates the captions being raised from their normal position at the bottom of the screen. Caption users were asked whether they would like to see the captions continue to be at the bottom of the screen, but raised slightly when necessary, or at the top of the screen for the entire program. Two-thirds of respondents said they preferred the first option.
Red Bee has posted a summary of the survey results, including comments that viewers made about other aspects of captioning.
