Netflix now lets you customize subtitles and closed captions

Netflix is giving TV users the option to customize the size and style of subtitles and closed captions.

Subscribers can now choose from three sizes — small, medium, and large — as well as four styles/colors.

The update will roll out to TV users globally today.

Netflix members were previously only able to access these subtitle and closed caption sizing and style options via the web.

A 2019 study by Verizon Media and Publicis Media shows that 80% of Americans reported that they are more likely to finish a video if it has captions available.

Giving TV users more styles, fonts, sizes, and colors for subtitles and closed captions can significantly improve the viewing experience.

Subtitles and closed captions are helpful for viewers who may not understand the language and viewers with hearing impairments.
