Caption Technologies, Inc. is now 
Aberdeen Broadcast Services

Aberdeen is thrilled to announce the acquisition of Caption Technologies, Inc. an established closed captioning provider with nearly 30 years of experience in the market.

Started in 1995, Caption Technologies was founded with the promise to bring real accessibility to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community with captioning that meets or exceeds FCC mandates. Their commitment to exceptional real-time and offline closed captioning, subtitling, and transcription services, along with being an approved vendor of the U.S. Department of Education and the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) made them a perfect fit for the Aberdeen family.

This acquisition strengthens our shared industry experience and allows for immediate scale with more readily available resources to fulfill the growing requests for accurate closed captioning.

“We are honored and excited that Vicki of Caption Technologies would think of us when making this transition. She put her heart and soul into the business and didn’t want to just turn it over to anyone. Having been friends and working together over the last 15 years, this seemed like a perfect fit. With the focus of both our companies on exceptional service and serving ministries, it makes for a smooth transition for everyone involved.”
Matt Cook
President, Aberdeen Broadcast Services

More About Closed Captioning

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.
