The National Captioning Institute (NCI) is a nonprofit organization that provides closed-captioning services to television networks, program producers, advertisers, producers of home entertainment videos, and other organizations in the government and private sectors. It was established in 1979, with the mission of ensuring that deaf and hard-of-hearing people have access to television’s entertainment and news through the technology of closed captioning. As part of its commitment to media access, NCI now offers Internet captioning as well as described video service for people who are blind or have low vision.
