Research on Closed Captioning
At the PAC3 at JALT Conference (2001), Gordon Liversidge discusses research showing that the presence of captioning aids comprehension and/or acquisition.

The second section introduces comprehensive studies each of which contain a number of experiments. The third section presents smaller experiments that examine specific questions.
