Earlier this year, Vimeo joined the ranks of video platforms such as YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon that allow content producers to add captions to their videos. Vimeo’s support of captioning highlights a fast-growing demand for a more accessible web.
VITAC has always been on the forefront of technological advances in the captioning world, and is proud to clarify that it does provide captioning for Vimeo — and has since Vimeo started supporting captions. Web captioning is critical to deaf and hard-of-hearing internet users, and while it has been required for broadcast television programs for over two decades now, the FCC has only recently begun mandating captions for web content. Many web content producers elect to caption their programming regardless of FCC mandates.
