Captioning is not only for millions of people with hearing loss or deafness. Captioning is also for literacy; e.g. see http://www.adlit.org/article/35793/?utm_source=Convio&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=WordUp. Captioning is used by many others, with different learning or language needs, e.g. for translations, and for search engine optimization.
