Closed Captioning Services

Taxonomy Code: PH-3500.1470

Organizations that transcribe pre-recorded/live television programs and films for viewers who are deaf or have hearing impairments or are learning to read. The closed captioning typically identifies the program’s speakers and includes spoken dialogue, music, laughter and sound effects. The captions are hidden as data within the television signal and must be decoded by either a set-top decoder or caption-ready television set in order to be viewed.
