The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) applauds the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and especially Chairman Wheeler for moving to upgrade the quality of closed captioning on television. The NAD and other deaf and hard of hearing organizations filed a petition in 2004 asking the FCC to create quality standards for closed captioning. Our community has long been frustrated with poor quality captioning on television. We need accurate, synchronous, complete, and properly placed captions so that we can fully understand programs.
