Closed captioning
Closed captioning (or abbreviated: CC) and subtitling are both processes of displaying text on a televisionvideo screen, or other visual display to provide additional or interpretive information. Both are essentially the same and typically used as a transcription of the audio portion of a program as it occurs (either or in edited form), sometimes including descriptions of non-speech elements. Other uses have been to provide a textual alternative language translation of a presentation's primary audio language which is usually burned-in (or open) to the video and not selectable (or closed).

closed captioning
In broadcast and cable television, the insertion, into the blank lines between frames, of information that may be decoded and displayed on the screen as written words corresponding to those being spoken and transmitted via the conventional audio subcarrier. Note: Closed captioning, developed for the hearing-impaired, requires a special decoder, which may be external to, or built into, the television receiver. Closed captioning is mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
