Pornhub Adds Closed Captioning on Website

Closed Captions Will Now Be Available on Select Adult Videos for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Users


NEW YORK, N.Y. (June 27, 2018) Pornhub, the premier online destination for adult entertainment, announced today the public launch of its Closed Captioning category, which features an entire library of content geared toward deaf and hard of hearing users. The inaugural collection will include over 1,000 top-viewed videos from the site’s straight, popular with women, gay, bi and transsexual categories. Each video will display descriptive and interpretive text aimed to help improve the experience for users who are not able to hear the video’s original audio. This includes helping to distinguish between different people talking and emotional changes in their voice or non-vocal audio that’s relevant to the storyline.


“Here at Pornhub, it’s important that we continue to service all of our users’ needs and make content accessible to every individual,” said Corey Price, VP, Pornhub. “By integrating our new Closed Captioning category, we are now able to render some of our most popular adult content more enjoyable for our users who are hearing impaired. We encourage them to check out our newest category and provide feedback, which is especially important as we seek to continue to offer content with the differently-abled user in mind.”


According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), approximately 15 percent of American adults (roughly 37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble hearing. “Apply that to the rest of the world, who we service on a daily basis, and that number increases exponentially,” said Price.


The launch of Pornhub’s Closed Captioning category compliments the company’s Descriptive Video category, which officially launched in 2016 and features audio descriptions of the site’s top performing videos geared toward the visually impaired.


Both the Descriptive Video and Closed Captioning campaigns are championed by Pornhub’s philanthropic division Pornhub Cares, which has hosted several other initiatives, including having recently optimized its platform for visually impaired users with enlarged text, customized color contrasts, and keyboard shortcuts; “Panda Style,” its panda conservation awareness and fundraising campaign; “Old School,” its sexual education video geared towards those in retirement communities and nursing homes; and the annual “Pornhub Cares Scholarship,” a $25,000 scholarship awarded to a deserving student.
