Closed Captioning to Be Available on Some Airline In-Flight Entertainment Systems

Passengers who are deaf or hard of hearing will soon be able to use closed captioning on videos and other in-flight entertainment on some airlines. The National Association of the Deaf and Gogo LLC have reached an agreement to make closed captioning available for all programming streamed through Gogo’s in-flight entertainment service, Gogo Vision. The service will be available by June 30, 2017 on airlines that offer Gogo Vision services.
