New law would be required to have Closed Caption (CC) in public such as bars and restaurants. I think that would be great. It’s not only for deaf but also for in noise rooms where full of people are talk too loud.
All bars and restaurants with TVs would be required to show closed captioning under legislation quickly working its way through a Senate committee.
But the measure hit a snag Thursday on its way out of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.
The bill is aimed at making it easier for deaf people to watch programs in bars and restaurants. Though committee members all said they liked the bill in principle, some thought it might be overkill to subject every patron to the text running across the bottom of each screen.
Current, you can always be kind to the waitress or server to turn CC on while you can enjoy watch something happen in the world. I have done it several time. Rarely, there was difficult for people who are unfamiliar on how to set the CC from the features. Bummer, all brand television has weird CC to turn on. Should have CC on remote to notice easy.
For some thoughtful, there are certainly people that I have hear or know that been complain, when CC appear to block in certain area. I think it’s better if they should set the transparent background to meet their satisfactory. Every HDTV with ATSC is always trend come with it. Of course, it causes the problem with cable box that DOESN’T offer the optional. I think the new FCC law that should told to every cable box from the cable company would need to re-mod to digital CC to meet.
