Is Closed Captioning Really That Important?

YES! 95 million Americans rely on closed captioning when viewing programs. 28 million of them are hearing impaired, 30 million are learning English as a second language, 27 million are adults trying to improve their literacy skills, and 10 million are children learning how to read. Furthermore, the FCC mandates nearly all programming to be closed captioned.

How Can Closed Captioning Improve Literacy?

Sadly, 32 million American adults are illiterate and 30 million cannot read higher than a 4th-grade reading level. Unfortunately, most adults do not read books but watch a ton of television. This is where closed captioning comes in! With a click of a button, these adults are now being able to read as they watch their favorite programming. And studies have shown that children who view television with the closed captioning turned on have higher educational achievements and literacy rates.
