The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) defines closed captioning as a display of the audio portion of a television program as text on the TV screen, providing a critical link to news, entertainment and information for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Congress requires video programming distributors (VPDs) - cable operators, broadcasters, satellite distributors and other multi-channel video programming distributors - to close caption their TV programs.
JTV provides closed captioning for the convenience of all viewers.
