USA Today: Facebook Live adds closed captioning for deaf and hard of hearing

USA Today: Facebook Live adds closed captioning for deaf and hard of hearing. “Not all Live videos will have closed captions, but if captioning settings are turned on, Facebook users will automatically see closed captions on Live broadcasts when they’re available, Facebook’s director of accessibility Jeffrey Wieland told USA TODAY. Facebook videos that are not live-streamed already had this capability, but only if the publishers offer captions.”
