DVD subtitles are a blessing for foreign-film enthusiasts and the hard of hearing alike. You can display subtitles with the Sony DVP CD/DVD player in any language that's available on the DVD. The Sony DVP CD/DVD player's subtitle features let you turn subtitles on or off and rotate through languages on the fly without stopping the DVD. Here is how.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you see numbers instead of languages, see the List of Language Codes link or check page 81 of your manual.
  • Often there are two separate English tracks: subtitles with dialogue only and closed captioning with sound cues for the deaf.
  • Some DVDs require you to change the subtitle settings in the DVD menu rather than the DVD player display settings.
