Great news from ACMA re captioning compliance levels on television services in 2015- 2016. Media Access Australia shared more information about percentage targets and also captioning on Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) services.
Using these movie scripts is a great way to support the use of captioned video in the classroom, as they provide a transcript from which to pre-teach vocabulary and concepts, prior to the viewing of the video.

Consider making a submission to the inquiry, to highlight the importance of legislation requiring the provision of captioning by broadcast and online providers in New Zealand. For further information refer to Media Access Australia’s news story.
