ADA to force Netflix to provid closed captioning on content

Shivetya (243324) writes | more than 2 years ago

Government 2

Shivetya (243324) writes "A judge has decided that the American Disabilities Act requires services like Netflix to provide Closed Captioning support for any video it streams on its website. The easiest means to comply would be to remove all videos which do not have a closed captioning component, the other route would require Netflix to pay to have this done to any video it wants to provide. The implications to other provides is immense as well."

Netflix is not a government website. They have terms of service. No one needs to use this service. If netflix has to show captions on all content and they lose significant customer base over this then does netflix have a case for damages?

ADA lack of judgement (1)

And this is why the ADA fails.
