As more and more content is exclusively available online, now more than ever people need closed captioning on the internet. This article from Huffington Post is a well-written editorial asking online content creators to get their videos captioned.
Here’s a pretty interesting statistic from the article:
“It is estimated that one in every six people on Earth experiences some degree of hearing loss; that number grows to one in three for individuals over 65 years old. These are people who deserve the same access to new media and pop culture as everyone else, and closed captioning helps provide that.”
