Captioning Censorship

The Television Captioning Censorship List is a list of 200 US Department of Education recently disapproved TV shows by the Department? Technology and Media Services for IndIndividuals with Disabilities program, effective October 1, 2003.
Looking at the approved vs. disapproved list, one can tell DOE selected more news and educational programming and got rid of fictional shows. On one hand, it makes sense since DOE is about education and that’s how they’re expected to use taxpayers’ dollars.
Accessibility expert (even more knowledgeable than me on captioning issues) Joe Clark provides his feedback on the whole cc shebang.
