Should TV clips be captioned? The FCC wants to know

The FCC wants to know whether video excerpts from broadcast TV should be captioned when posted on the Internet. The Commission already requires full television programs to be captioned when it is put on the internet. The FCC wants comments because when Congress authorized it to require TV program producers to caption videos, lawmakers said that, in time, the requirement would move from entire programs to program excerpts. The question before the FCC is whether this is the time to start making this a requirement or not. Comments are due by Monday, January 27. You can read the notice here.
