The laws for online mandatory video captioning have already been passed. It is now a matter of enforcing the regulation for language accessibility for the Deaf/deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing impaired/hearing disabled. By using the #captionTHIS hashtag, we will be sending the message out to all the media that are not in compliance with the captioning laws. There were a couple mentioned in the video, and many more on the visual billboard that was splashed on the screen. It goes beyond Twitter, it will be on FaceBook and any Social Media website out there, but we will be using the #captionTHIS as the marker everywhere.
