Closed captions in Xbox Video on Xbox One

Overview

Closed captions let you read the words that are spoken in the audio portion of a video or television program and often include other descriptors that identify speakers and background noises. When closed captioning is turned on, captions are usually displayed at the bottom of your TV screen, monitor, or other video-display device. Closed captions are usually used by people who have hearing disabilities, and also by viewers who would rather read than listen to the audio portion of a video.

For more information about closed captions, see the Federal Communications Commission's Closed Captioning Guide.
