Quality Standards for Captions

The image is a diagram featuring the words "CAPTION MEDIA SERVICES," with the added text "Quality Standards for Captions." There is a clipart of a clipboard with a list on the right.
The FCC’s 2014 final ruling on captioning quality (p. 21-22) goes in depth on the quality standards of captioning on television programming. Both the FCC final ruling and WCAG success criteria reference the DCMP Captioning Key guidelines for creating quality captions. Additionally, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) will generally use the WCAG success criteria standards as a benchmark tool when conducting investigations for web content accessibility including videos and other media.
