Third-party Developer Captioning Requirement
Oct 3, 2023
HTC and the VIVE family are passionate about bringing virtual reality to the world. We strive to make the VIVEPORT platform accessible to a wider audience. To achieve this goal and enhance the VR experience for all, HTC will require captioning of all third-party content on the VIVEPORT Infinity Platform by October 3, 2025. We recognize the challenges of updating existing content, so any content made available on the VIVEPORT Infinity Platform as of April 3, 2023, will be exempt from this requirement. Captioning not only ensures accessibility but also enriches the user experience. Resources to assist with integrating captioning into virtual reality apps can be found here . HTC will release information in the future regarding the process for submission of captioned content. HTC has previously published information to help developers implement captioning, but we encourage development teams having difficulty to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
