"The cable industry is committed to providing high-quality captioning to our customers and we would like to thank Chairman Wheeler for his thoughtful approach to this important issue. The identification and development of captioning best practices will help advance our common goal. We look forward to continuing to work constructively with the Commission, the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, and other interested stakeholders to evaluate progress and to build on our ongoing efforts to provide high-quality captioning."
