I am really excited and can’t wait to use the new closed caption tech. I use the captions on the TV all the time. Would you be able to tell me which cinemas will be using them soon? Hopefully, they will be in Geelong or Melbourne, Victoria.
Unfortunately, I don;t think this is headed for Australia too soon. Its all taking shape in the US, and I don;t expect it to come to countries like Australia until it is finalised. Local laws are also still catching up with all this new technology, and as such, cinemas are not likely to move until they are also in place.
