Porn website Pornhub has added a “Closed Captioning” category for viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The inaugural collection of the 1,000 top viewed videos on the website’s straight, popular with women, gay, bisexual and transsexual categories will be available for users with descriptive and interpretive text which aims to improve viewers’ experiences, and distinguish between different people talking, or help viewers follow the video’s storyline.

“Here at Pornhub, it’s important that we continue to service all of our users’ needs and make content accessible to every individual,” said Corey Price, VP, Pornhub.

“By integrating our new Closed Captioning category, we are now able to render some of our most popular adult content more enjoyable for our users who are hearing impaired.

“We encourage them to check out our newest category and provide feedback, which is especially important as we seek to continue to offer content with the differently-abled user in mind.”

The launch of the Closed Captioning category will complement Pornhub’s existing Descriptive Video category, which they launched in 2016. The implementation of the category came from Pornhub’s understanding that approximately  37.5 million adults in America over the age of 18 report some degree of difficulty hearing. “Apply that to the rest of the world, who we service on a daily basis, and that number increases exponentially,” said Price.
