A high profile campaign by Deaf Oscar-winning actor Marlee Matlin has led to US airline Continental confirming that it will provide closed captioning on its LiveTV service from the first half of 2011. 

Continental joins a handful of airlines around the world that offer captioning on in-flight entertainment, including Qantas which also has a daily captioned news service.
