Give the Department of Justice Your Opinion on Movie Captioning

The United States Department of Justice is considering revising "title III regulations to require movie theater owners and operators to show movies with closed captions and video description in their theaters at least fifty percent of the time," and they would like your comments.

Although open captions would not be required, they would also like to hear your opinion on those as well.

The Federal Register has instructions on how to comment:

When submitting comments electronically, you must include DOJ-CRT 2010-0112 in the search field, and you must include your full name and address. [...]  Please note that all comments received are considered part of the public record and made available for public inspection online at www.regulations.gov.
