From Sound to Subtitles

In 1977 between 21,000 and 24,000 instructional films were available in the United States for loan or purchase from film distributors. Of these films, approximately 2,000 were nonverbal and could, therefore, be viewed in their original form by deaf persons. Another 885 educational films had been captioned. Overviews the activity of the Captioned Films for the Deaf program to close that gap. Prepared by the Special Office for Materials Distribution, Indiana University, Audio-Visual Center, Bloomington, Indiana (1977).
