I have just completed 14 hours of international air travel, and I am very upset because I am deaf and the brand-new Boeing 777 plane's seat video displays do not include closed captioning. My hearing husband was upset too.
As soon as I got back, I called the airline to demand an explanation. They told me the screens were too small to include captioning. Bull! Commercials shown included small-print type, and those were clearly readable. They could have also developed a screen enlarger for use by deaf passengers. Another solution that has been proposed is a hand-held video display terminal that has closed captioning.
