Pornhub is often disregarded in terms of technological innovation and social good but its latest update to the platform introduces Pornhub closed captions. According to the adult entertainment site, the new feature is designed to better the experience for the close to 40 million Americans that have some sort of hearing loss. In addition to providing captions, the Pornhub closed captions feature will also be able to identify which person is speaking, changes in emotion and will highlight non-dialog sounds that are relevant to story or scene information.

The Pornhub closed captions integration is just the latest accessibility push launched by the website, the first initiative launched described audio for those with sight loss. The entirety of the captions will be captioned by hand, rather than utilizing an algorithmic system used by other video platforms.
