Given that many of the subtitles are sponsored by the Department of Education and this only applies to segments of TV shows that make it to the Internet I'm not really finding a problem with this.

/and I don't own a cat. Filthy creatures.

From Faux News....

Bullshiat detector is off the charts.

I know this is going to come as a real shocker, but the headline is click bait BS.

I watch all my entertainment with closed captioning on. Sometimes you can't understand what they are saying. Helped me to understand what Bane was saying in the Batman movie.

I want to see the FCC require closed captioning in porn.

This would be an exceptionally expense regulation. Youtube alone has 3600 years worth of video uploaded to Youtube every year
 
2014-07-05 07:07:03 PM  
Is this meant to confuse the difference between the FCC allegedly controlling the content of youtube videos and stating that all 0's and 1's must be treated equally?

Because if [in theory] the fcc insists on proving closed caption content to all videos on the internet, there are many porn videos that will need closed caption titles too.

-I cut out the middleman and use the mute button.  Cheaper and easier.

ArkAngel: This would be an exceptionally expense regulation. Youtube alone has 3600 years worth of video uploaded to Youtube every year


-Expensive, and it would make getting pertinent videos posted quickly almost impossible, unless the uploader foots the bill for premium access.  Garbage like this should merit a budget cut, given the evidence that the FCC has too much time and personnel on it's hands.

The correction is helpful.
Still it should not matter. The FCC does not control the content of cable, why can they control the content of the internet?

This sounds like a reality constructed to get the government off of my personal internets.

Per the article:
The vote, planned for the FCC's July meeting, is the result of a years-long push - and Chairman Tom Wheeler's personal interest - to increase accessibility online.

Tom Wheeler is now officially an industry shill.

As long as you can turn off the CC, who cares.

Live closed-captioning is wildly hysterical in many cases, btw.

The FCC had nothing to do with what was on the internet besides maybe the fair and equal delivery of 0's and 1's. Illegal content had nothing to do with the FCC to the best of my knowledge.

Now the FCC is making decisions about what legal content is and isn't acceptable. What if a smaller service wants to stream videos youtube does not? Can they afford to implement the CC?

Thank you, but I was hoping things remained a Faux load of bullshiat.

Why do liberals on fark love shouting with pride their proud ignorance?

God forbid you read something that might harm your fragile preconcieved notions.

This is why liberalism is so ignorant, it relies on plugging ones ears and chanting I cant hear you.

They already forced Netflix, even videos prior to CC regulation. Cost them minions.

The outcome to Friday's vote is expected to be close. Wheeler and Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, Democrats, are expected to vote in favor of changes, while Commissioners Ajit Pai and Michael O'Rielly, Republicans, are expected to oppose the changes, with the deciding vote perhaps coming from Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, a Democrat, a source said.

This time the democrats want to f**k up the internet.

It always annoys me when a video starts with CC turned on. It took me a couple of videos with uniform CC to figure that out. The guy is speaking very clearly. Why does he have captions? That always annoys me about TV, too. Every time someone talks that doesn't speak in a perfectly clear, accent-free voice, they caption that person.

The FCC need to be shut down. They where suppose to look out for consumers. Now just helps screw them over.

Coming from someone who is hearing impaired, I would appreciate some improvement on the online video clip closed captioning....although the hilarity of it sometimes makes it worthwhile to keep it as-is. This is a snapshot from watching a G-rated youtube Muppets video at Christmas this past year:

I do live sports broadcast on a local station. I cost us 700 per hour to add the closed captioning. We are bareky making 3 grand profit a night and now the fcc wants us to add $2100 cost to each broadcast and the equipment cant be bought, Must be rented with a telephone line installed at each high school stadium so some lady in Colorado can type what I say. This is stupid and coming to every internet video. Even cat videos.

$700 an hour?  I must be in the wrong profession.  I know a court stenographer makes like $25 an hour.  A person who does closed caption makes what $500, $600 an hour?  It's a shame you guys have to rent a telephone at every event instead of buying one cellphone, but really what are you going to do?  The smell of bullshiat makes me have to sneeze and now I need a Kleenex.

Not sure, but probably some intel agency is quietly behind this. It's CPU intensive for them to do voice analysis, but childs' play to parse CC files and only a little more to do facial recognition. Meanwhile, sure would like our highways and bridges repaired? Oh sorry, guess that's unimportant.

I was just watching an AFL game earlier today. The CC was pretty funny. It was Portland vs Cleave Land. That reminds me of watching a Cowboys game last year. The CC kept repeating some phrase about 216 yards. Romo was passing for 216 yards every time he threw the ball, the offense would run the ball for 216 yards, just shy of a first down. Penalty flags would fly and move the ball back 216 yards. It was hilarious!

$25 an hour?  I'm a stenographer, and that is ridiculously low.  Crazy low.  Do you live in backwater nowhere?  Perhaps your friend only works a few jobs.  The average around here is between 60,000 and 95,000.  If you want to do realtime, which is TV captioning, live events captioning, going to school with deaf students, etc., it can jump way up into the six digits.
