5NEWS is now complying with the FCC-mandated requirement to caption IP-based internet video streams. This requirement, with a compliance deadline of March 30, 2013, means that we must caption all live video programming.
We have done so on our website at 5NEWSonline.com and within the live streaming areas of our apps. Another deadline to caption non-live programming arrives in September 2013. See this link for more information.
At this time, captions are not available to be turned off, unlike your television where that capability exists. We are looking at ways to make captioning selectable.
