An Ofcom study found that 80% of people who use closed captions aren’t deaf or heard of hearing.

We’re curious to learn more about who these people are and how, when, and why they use captions.

Does closed caption use vary depending on what device you use to watch videos? How do closed captions factor into your general video viewing habits?

To answer these questions and more, we’ve assembled a short survey on closed captioning use.

It should take you less than 2 minutes to complete, and you can enter to win a Starbucks or Amazon gift card.

The survey results will be published in a State of Captioning Use report on the 3Play Media website in the spring of 2017.
