Captioning Quality Code of Practice

From the Deafness Forum of Australia Web site. Although this captioning manual grants permission to use American- and British-style captioning with like programs, Australian programs are required to follow Australian captioning guidelines. Covers basic issues of captioning, such as editing, presentation speed, and punctuation. Notes the use of "colour" to identify speakers and sound effects. Also addresses error rates and live captioning.
