When you google broadcast captioning mandates in the U.S., you’re immediately directed to the FCC website where you get tons of information detailing the closed captioning rules and requirements that U.S. broadcasters must follow for both over-the-air and streamed programming. If they fail to comply, there are repercussions, such as penalties and fines.
Real-time captioning has become pervasive as digital content creators strive to make their videos accessible to all, especially the deaf and hard of hearing. While captioning used to be the bailiwick of broadcast TV, it’s now widely available on today’s media fare, including video podcasts, educational videos, and all types of entertainment.

In this way, deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers, or those watching with the sound down or off, can follow along.
