“It is highly beneficial for people with hearing problems.” – caption viewer

Captions are a transcription of the programme’s soundtrack, including dialogue, sound effects and music. Captions usually appear at the bottom of the screen.

Able provides captioning for New Zealand television channels, including TVNZ 1, TVNZ 2, TV3, Prime, DUKE, all the +1 channels, and there are captions available on some SKY channels too.

“Thank you so much for the subtitles you provide. It makes watching TV so much more pleasureable.” – caption viewer
