Roundtable Discussion of Closed Captioning for Public Access and Governmental Programming

November 10, 2015, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST
445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554

The FCC will hold a forum on November 10, 2015, to promote discussion about closed captioning of public access and governmental programming shown on television. The event will include discussions about the benefits of captioning such programming, the relevant captioning obligations of programmers and stations, and effective captioning solutions. The event will engage local government professionals, policy makers, captioning vendors, consumer groups, engineers, representatives from the programming industry, and others as appropriate. The goal of this event is to raise awareness of the issues surrounding captioning of public access and governmental programming, and to ensure the accessibility of such programming for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, as well as other individuals who may benefit from the availability of closed captions on this programming.

What: Tools for Expanding Closed Captioning of Public Access Programming
Date: Tuesday, November 10, 2015
