Doesn’t NZ already have live closed captions?

Only for some shows and content

Jeez that’s slack. And they call themselves a developed country…

Yeah you’re telling me. We don’t have strict laws around providing captions. NZ has the worse free market broadcasting regulations in the world, no local content quota’s or other rules to help foster a healthy broadcasting environment.

Noticed some screen-clutter last monday at the top of the bulletin saying something about captions. Can’t say I’ve noticed it since… (edit) it must have been a misfire.

There was a story in last night’s bulletin about it, but I can’t find it online.

I felt Lisette deserved reporter of the year over Barbara Dreaver though

Yeah I thought Lisette for reporter of the year would have been a given!
