The mission of HLAA-Central Massachusetts is to educate its members, their families and friends about the causes, nature and complications of hearing loss and what can be done to better cope with that loss.
Netflix and the National Association of the Deaf Reach Historic Agreement to
Provide 100% Closed Captions in On-Demand Streaming Content Within Two Years
Netflix Inc. and the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), a non-profit
organization, have submitted a joint Consent Decree to a federal court in
Springfield, Mass., ensuring closed captions in 100% of Netflix streaming
content within two years.
NAD, along with the Western Massachusetts Association of the Deaf and
Hearing-Impaired (WMAD/HI) and Lee Nettles, a deaf Massachusetts resident,
brought suit against Netflix seeking that commitment in 2010.
