A deaf rights group that sued Netflix to compel it to caption all its video programming has reached a similar deal with Amazon over its streaming video.
Unlike the Netflix settlement, the deal between Amazon and the National Association for the Deaf was negotiated without litigation.
Amazon has already captioned 100 percent of the video it offers through its Prime Video and has agreed to continue to do so. Under the deal with NAD, Amazon will move through its back-catalog content, captioning an additional 190,000 titles which weren’t given captioned by the content creators.
