Canada's regulatory commission for broadcast is asking for comments related to closed captioning on Canadian English and French television broadcasts. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission plans to require all license holders to adhere to the new regulations it is developing. French language standards will be considered in a separate process. Specifically, the commission wants input on what should count as an error, what the error limit should be and what corrections should be expected during a re-broadcast of what was a live program. The comment deadline is October 14th.
