Closed captioning

For those who are not cataloguers, forgive the digression, but
a few years ago, we developed standards for cataloguing
videos. It would help if the MARC record indicated that the
item contains captioning. We put a note in 546 which is the
tag for 'language'. It reads: closed captioned.
We also use a 650 subject heading:
Closed captioned for the Hearing Impaired

The physical item may arrive without captioning when a catalogue
record says that it exists. We consider it
to be defective & return it. At least you know that it is supposed to have the
captioning, if it's in the MARC record (if you can find cataloguing).
