To help deaf and hard-of-hearing TV viewers, captions were introduced in the early 1970s; by the 1980s, they had been made a legal requirement for broadcast television in the United States. Captioning is the process of turning the text from the audio content of a webcast, television programme, film, live event, and other works and displaying it on a screen or monitor. This made it possible for people who are hard of hearing or deaf to access media that would otherwise be inaccessible. For students who are hard of hearing or deaf, captions are a crucial component of the educational process.Finding and offering top-notch captioned content to users and students is well worth the time and effort put in by libraries and educators. In some circumstances where there is more background noise, captions are also crucial. During the pandemic, captioning has also aided corporate sectors in running meetings more effectively. Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) and stenography are the two main technologies used in live captioning. There are 360 million individuals who are already deaf, and this figure is likely to rise in the foreseeable future, supporting the expansion of the live captioning industry over the course of the forecast period.
