SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR NEWS PROGRAMS
TV news programs also must provide 100% closed captioning as of January 1, 2006.
ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and their affiliates must realtime caption their news in the “top 25” television markets. Realtime captioning should display captions for everything that is being spoken.
