YouTube wants you to tell on publishers without closed captions — Online Video News

YouTube wants you to tell on publishers without closed captions — Online Video News.

Apparently YouTube is actively encouraging the deaf and hard-of-hearing community to turn in publishers who’s videos on the site do not have subtitles. This effort is in response to  the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 and the the enabling regulations recently enacted by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”). These laws require that video sites close-caption any video that has previously been shown on television (as long as it was not substantially re-edited for online display).
