Apex Captioning San Diego provides open and closed captions
- Captions may be “open” or “closed.”
- To view closed captions, viewers need a set-top decoder or a television with built-in decoder circuitry.
- Open captions appear on all television sets and can be viewed without a decoder.
- In the past, some news bulletins, presidential addresses, or programming created by or for deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences were open captioned.
- With the widespread availability of closed-caption technology, open captions are rarely used.
