New and Emerging Technologies in Media Accessibility
When I was asked to write an article about emerging captioning technologies, my first thoughts were of
the cutting edge: high-definition television (HDTV) captions with adjustable sizes, captioned video on the
Internet, and eyeglasses that show captions to you (and only you!) in a movie theater. Then I had a
discussion with Bill Stark of the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP).

Making Captioning Perfect
As you might guess, we get a lot of kidding about our name, "Caption Perfect." Admittedly, we've
never been perfect and don't really expect to be, but our goal is to make our captions the equivalent quality to that found in the publishing world. We want to continuously improve the quality of our work, and we want clients who expect the same. Of all our clients, the National Association of the Deaf's Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) has held us and its other vendors to the most exacting standard, and this demand has improved the quality of all of our work. We generally follow a series of steps to make our captions the best they can be, and below is a description of the process we use for the DCMP.
