With every new sports venue, remodel, or video-scoreboard renovation comes a decision each sports organization must make: how to comply with federal and local regulations on providing in-venue live closed-captioning content for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. The ever-increasing use of visual and aural technologies to present and enhance the game for attendees has also created the need to identify ways to provide an equal experience for deaf and hard- of-hearing fans. This is most effectively accomplished through captioning of the live aural content and presenting these captions on LED displays, TVs, and other auxiliary devices within the venue.
