According to the latest PC Gamer, the Half Life 2 game will have a closed captioning feature for the deaf and hard of hearing. It sounds like the multiplayer version is not closed captioned, but the single player campaign is covered.
It's nice to a highly anticipated game dealing with accessibility.
It might be interesting to find out from Valve Software exactly what they did and how difficult it was to add this feature.
