Topic: Captioning

Captioning is a topic of primary interest at the Open & Closed Project.

Captioning is the transcription of speech and important sound effects for the benefit of deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers and others. It can be applied to a range of film, video, and multimedia formats, including television, home video, first-run movies, online video, installations, and more.

Captioning is not subtitling, and the Open & Closed Project will not confuse the two.
