Tip #79: CC, SDH, and DVC in videorecordings

If the CC symbol is on the videorecording container, the 546 field should include the phrase: “closed-captioned”.

If the container displays a small box with the acronym SDH, then the 546 field should include a phrase such as, “optional subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing” or “optional subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired”. This is different than closed-captioning because it includes non-dialog audio and speaker identification.

If the container for the videorecording contains the acronym DVC or the words “Descriptive Video Captioning”, the 546 field should include the phrase, “Audio-described”. Descriptive video captioning provides an audio description of the action in the film.

Examples:

546 ‡a Subtitled for the deaf and hard of hearing; audio described for the visually impaired.
546 ‡a Closed-captioned ; audio-described.
546 ‡a Closed-captioned for the hearing impaired.
546 ‡a English, dubbed French or dubbed Spanish dialogue; subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
546 ‡a English, dubbed French or dubbed Spanish dialogue, English, French or Spanish subtitles; English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
