Zenith Electronics Corp. began production of digital HDTVs capable of providing digital closed captioning services to the deaf and hearing-impaired: The 34-inch C34W23 widescreen integrated HDTV, the 36-inch C36V23 integrated HDTV and the 32-inch C32V23.

Unlike analog closed captions, digital caption capability (based on the EIA-708 standard) provides flexibility and greater user control over caption display, including font style, text size and color, and backgrounds.

Closed captioning is an access technology that allows persons with hearing disabilities to appreciate and understand television programming. In order to display closed captions, viewers must either use a TV receiver with integrated decoder circuitry or a set-top.
