How to Turn Closed Captions On/Off on Roku
« on: November 05, 2017, 05:21:58 AM »
When turned on and enabled on your Roku, closed captioning (CC) will show the words for speech, sound effects and other noise from a TV show or movie as written text at the bottom of your TV screen.



This can be very helpful for individuals who are hard-of-hearing or deaf. Closed captions is also helpful for sound tracks that are difficult to understand or for watching TV without disturbing other family members.

They must be included with the channel you are trying to watch. Not all channels offer closed captions.
Some of the more popular channels like Hulu, Netflix and even The Roku Channel all do include closed captions.


Here is how to turn closed captions on or off:

Closed captions won't be shown until they are turned on or activated either on your Roku in settings or from within the channels themselves.

For most Roku channels the closed captions can be turned on or off right from the settings of your Roku device.


 - On Your Roku Remote Press the Home button
 - Then Scroll up or down and choose Settings.
 - To open the closed captions menu, choose Accessibility. If there is no Accessibility menu, choose Captions.
 - Choose Captions mode and then select when captions appear.
 - Off captions will never appear
 - On captions always appear (when available from within the channel). When a Roku channel uses their own settings, closed captions are turned of or on within their channel.
 - On replay closed captions will only be displayed when pressing the Replay button on your Roku remote (only with content that supports instant replay)
When mute captions will only be displayed when volume is muted. This feature is not available on all Roku devices.


How To Customize Closed Captions

For any Roku channels that use the closed captioning settings available on your Roku device, you can customize the style of how closed captioning is displayed.  Text, Background and Window.

- On your Roku remote, Press the Home button home .
 - Scroll up or down and choose Settings.
 - Open the style menu by choosing  Accessibility and then Caption style. If there is no menu for Accessibility, choose Captions.
 - You can adjust each style element. A preview will show up on your screen which will show the look of the changes.

- Text style (font) / edge effect / size / color / opacity
- Background color / opacity
- Window color / opacity
- Using closed captions during playback


For channels that use the closed captioning settings available on your Roku device, closed captions can often be turned on or off during playback.

This feature may not be available on all Roku channels.


After your show or movie begins playing, press the Star button star on your Roku remote. This will open the Options menu.
Scroll up or down and select Closed captioning.
Use the left or right button on your remote to select when captions appear.
 - Off captions never appear
 - On captions always appear (when available from the service provider). When service providers use their settings, closed captions are activated within their channel.
 - On replay captions will only be displayed after pressing the Replay button replay button on your Roku remote (this only works with content that supports instant replay)
 - On mute captions will only be displayed when volume is muted. Note: not available on all Roku devices.
 - When closed captions are turned on or off during playback, the settings will be saved for future programs.
