After reaching an agreement with the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), Netflix announced it’s intent to provide closed-captioning in 100% of streaming content by 2014.
Currently, 82% of programing is available with closed captioning, with an expected increase to 90% next year and then the complete library becoming available by 2014.

This is a benchmark win for the hearing impaired community. Being unable to hear will no longer be an obstacle for enjoying movies in the comfort of one’s own home.
