Whether programs are broadcast via traditional or online platforms, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) takes closed captioning very seriously. In its published guidelines, this regulatory government agency explains the importance of closed captioning.
While captioning and transcribing videos both involve converting the spoken word into text, the real difference lies in the way they are used. In the case of open and/or closed captioning, the mission is for broadcasters and podcasters to provide on-screen text that displays in sync with the spoken word. In this way, deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers, or those watching with the sound down or off, can follow along.
