I would say that there's no doubt that this material should be captioned,
under Â§ 1194.24 ( c ) Video and multimedia products:
"All training and informational video and multimedia productions which
support the agency's mission, regardless of format, that contain speech or
other audio information necessary for the comprehension of the content,
shall be open or closed captioned."
There is no language that exempts broadcast or cable or closed-circuit
transmission of video productions, even though we often spend our time
talking about web-based media for this provision. We can certainly add
language in our rewrite that clearly indicates such productions and
transmissions should be captioned (of course, with the national security
exemption still applicable).
