Join Viki and Marlee Matlin on the Billion Words March!

Our mission at Viki has always been to bring down language barriers that stand between great entertainment and fans everywhere

Today, we take another important step toward that goal as we partner with Academy Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin to kick off the Billion Words March, a year-long campaign to champion access to online TV shows and movies for 360 million people worldwide with deafness and hearing loss

The BWM is our response to the recent FCC regulation that mandates improved closed captioning for broadcast TV and video streaming platforms in the US. 

In addition to helping the deaf and hearing impaired, closed captions can help anyone retain information more efficiently, and according to Viki fans, even learn other languages.

With our innovative crowdsourced subtitling technology and amazing community of fans worldwide, Viki has always met these requirements, but we need your help to encourage all governments to take this important step. Contact your local officials today.
