How To Enable Closed Captioning On Roku
The closed captioning (CC) feature on Roku displays the text on screen for the spoken elements, background noises or sound effects in a movie or TV show. These captions basically provide subtitles for everything you see on screen. The feature provides an important means of entertainment for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. It is also useful in understanding the dialogues of a movie or TV show in case they sound is not clear or the dialogues are difficult to understand.

The closed captions can be turned off or on even during the playback. However, the feature is not available on all the Roku channels. It is solely dependent on whether the service provider is including them or not. So you must check the availability of closed captions with your service provider. In this blog, we’ll provide important information on how you can turn on or off the closed captions on Roku.

Enabling Closed Captions On Roku
Closed Captions on Roku channels won’t show up unless you have enabled the closed captioning feature on Roku. For most of the channels, you can activate closed captioning from your Roku device settings. To enable this setting, follow the below given steps.
