Recently, the FCC extended the time for interested parties to comment on certain closed captioning issues.  In a recent Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the FCC announced that it is seeking comment on two issues related to its captioning rules: (1) possible synchronization requirements for devices covered by the FCC closed captioning rules and (2) closed captioning requirements for DVD and Blu-ray players.  Although comments were scheduled to be due in September, at the request of groups including Telecommunications for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc., the FCC extended the time period to comment.  Comments are now due on November 4, 2013, and reply comments are due on December 4, 2013.
