It’s hard to imagine that closed captioning started less than forty years ago! #factfriday #DeafHistoryMonth
[VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: Sean is standing in front of a dark background. #FactFriday in light blue flickering on in a white border on the upper left corner. The NAD logo is on the upper right corner. The #FactFriday flickers out of sight.
SEAN: In 1971, closed captioning debuted on two TV shows, after testing a broadcast at Gallaudet which proved that it was doable. That was the start of the future of closed captioning!
Video fades to a soft grey background with several different font types showing “NAD” in dark grey very quickly. Copyright video ends with the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) logo centered.]
