Year 2013 in Review

The new year is already starting soon this week, and I would like to highlight some things related to audio accessibility happening throughout this passing year:

Some major changes are expected to happen in 2014:

  • Netflix agreed to caption all of their videos by 2014 – hope it will be true.
  • There’s work to have text-to-911 available nationwide in USA: “AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have voluntarily committed to provide text-to-911 service by May 15, 2014 in all areas served by their networks where a 911 call center is prepared to receive texts.”
  • Some great news will happen hopefully next month and be announced then.

I would like to conclude the article with a fun safety video with creative captions by Virgin America.

Happy New Year!
