After the wildfires in San Diego this past May, some hearing-impaired viewers of television station KGTV complained to the Federal Communications Commission that the broadcaster’s so-called closed captioning didn’t work very well. The station provided a mea culpa and promised to do better but noted that it didn’t break any laws. “While the complainant is certainly correct that the station sometimes failed to deliver quality closed captioning during the three days that it offered extended live coverage of fast-breaking news about local wildfires, the Commission’s rules did not require KGTV to provide any live captioning for such programming and, during the limited time when the station failed to offer live captioning of this breaking news, it still provided viewers with the required critical emergency information by visual means through onscreen banners and crawls.” …
