Mobile Web and News App Closed Captioning FAQ

Is Closed Captioning Available?

We are pleased to offer closed captioning on all live simulcast streams made available through mobile browsers and mobile apps. Videos with closed captioning will have a “message icon” in the player controls. Just tap to enable or disable. If the icon is not displaying, follow the directions in the next section to turn on closed captioning within the device OS settings.

How do I make the Closed Captioning text bigger or change the style?

You may customize the display of closed captioning including changing the size, font, color, and styling. These customization options are available by accessing the device OS settings for iOS and Android and then selecting the desired options from the menu.

For iOS, the Accessibility settings are located under the Settings icon on the iPhone homescreen, then choose General, Accessibility, Subtitles & Captioning.
