Caption TV Shows and Commercials for People with Hearing Loss

Submitted by Paula Rosenthal on March 20, 2009 – 9:57 am18 Comments

Spring Awakening at HearingExchange

Today is the first day of spring and while I hear the birds chirping outside my window, it’s snowing here in New York. Even though the sky is dark, grey and dismal looking, I have only thoughts of spring awakening and renewal here at HearingExchange.

The other night I took a break after a long day and curled up on my couch with a cozy blanket and a snack to watch some television. Even though I hear incredibly well with my bilateral cochlear implants, I always use closed captions when I’m watching tv. After a full day of using my ears and brain to function well in auditory mode only, I like to relax and let my eyes do the work for me in the evenings. To my great disappointment, three commercials in a row were not captioned for the deaf and hard of hearing!

As anyone who reads this blog with some regularity knows, I’m a huge proponent of captioning in movie theaters. I’m also an advocate of captioning on tv. All three of my children were early readers and have tested as one to three grades ahead of their peers in reading, depending on when they were tested. My kids never knew what television looked like without the captioned words at the bottom until they watched at a friend’s house. While this is just a mommy observation and not a scientific one, I’m confident in my theory that our captioned television programs strengthened their reading abilities.

Not only is captioning important for the millions of adults and children with hearing loss, it is an excellent aid for the many residents of the U.S. for whom English is their second language.

As a new feature at HearingExchange, I will be blogging from time to time to call attention to companies that are not captioning their commercials or television shows in the Captioning Wall of Shame. I’m also going to spotlight companies that are captioning their programs in Cool Captioners. If you have suggestions for either of these groups, leave a comment below or email them to me so I can include them in the next edition.

Happy Spring and enjoy your weekend!

  • I totally understand your perspective. Further, captioning can be taken to another level if it is offered in languages besides standard formats like English. This is largely possible since direct-to-home or PPV type of services are increasingly offering customized services to its clients and may be they can offer choice of captioning language across some common languages used across the world.
