Public broadcasting station to broadcast political views with caption for the Upper House election

June 8, 2013

In order to broadcast political views intelligibly for the Deaf/deaf community, Nippon Hoso Kyokai (Japan Broadcasting Corporation: NHK) will broadcast political views of proportional candidates for the Upper House election in summer with caption.

Broadcast of political views with caption has been strongly requested from organizations of the Deaf/deaf, about which  NHK has inquired with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications since 1998.

With equipment and a system ready in the broadcast center in Tokyo, NHK decided to carry out only for the Upper House election proportional candidates taped in the center.
