If you take a look at the Ofcom document linked above, the reason a "subtitle' caption is on the idents is explained at the top of page 22.
A1.21 Publicity: the word ‘Subtitles’ should be displayed legibly on the screen at the start
of the programme.
There is no equivalent requirement within the code for Audio Description and/or in-vision signing.

So technically Channel 4 and others who don't show a Subtitles DOG are in breach of the Ofcom code. Interesting!

Has anyone got any updated info on when the BBC News website will be fully Reithed then. Yes, some section home pages are done, but the main home page and 99% of articles are still non-Reith.


Still waiting!


Perhaps when the relaunched BBC iPlayer comes? It’s a shame the news website hasn’t been Reithed properly.
