Closed captioning added to October 2011 general conference videos online

Closed captioning in English has been added to the October 2011 general conference videos posted online at LDS.org. The release marks the first time that videos on LDS.org have offered closed captioning.

In the past, closed captioning has been offered for the live broadcast on television and satellite, but not on the Church’s website.
