New closed captioning regulations coming into effect
SAN FRANCISCO -- Closed captioning is coming to video on abc7news.com.
In order to better serve our hearing impaired viewers, and to comply with newly established Internet protocol (IP) regulations and guidelines from the Federal Communications Commission KGO-TV is now presenting captions on all full-length pre-recorded video programming that has been broadcast on television and has not been edited for the Internet.
It's the first phase in a set of new rules from the Federal Communications Commission, requiring distributors of television programming to provide closed captioning to assist viewers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing as part of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA).
The Station is committed to full compliance with the FCC regulations on the CVAA, and we will continue to advise viewers of our plans on this website in the coming months.
