Closed captioning or subtitling was introduced in the early 1970s for the benefit of the deaf and hearing impaired. The concept also became popular for people who could not comprehend a non-native language. It is also used in noisy environments or public places where the audio is usually muted. Formerly, closed captioning indicated that the captions had to be activated; open captioning was visible to all viewers. Today, the terms subtitling and closed captioning are more or less synonymous.
