Adtext, launched in 2008, provides advertisers access to this valuable target market by supplying high-quality, broadcast-ready hard-of-hearing English subtitles for their commercials and idents.
With a market share of nearly 90%, Adtext has extended its services into foreign language commercial subtitling for the hard-of-hearing and re-versioning for international campaigns. In addition, British Sign Language (BSL) and audio-described commercials are also available.
Approximately 17% (36 million) of American adults report some degree of hearing loss according to the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communications Disorders NIDCD.
Closed-captioned commercials ensure the advertising message reaches all members of society and not just hearing people. Failure to provide closed captions may unintentionally communicate to the hard-of-hearing that their business is not valued. For individuals whose native language is not English, English language captions improve comprehension and fluency.
