How to Enable Captions in Netflix Streaming

By Natasha Puryear

Netflix offers many movies that you can watch instantly on your computer, Internet-ready television or streaming player that supports Netflix. While this is an inexpensive way to quickly watch the movie of your choice, you do not have access to the DVD menu of the movie in order to set up captions. This can be very frustrating for those hard of hearing. Getting the captions started on Netflix streaming is an easy task that is the same no matter which device you use to stream a movie.

Step 1

Click Play on the movie you want to stream. The movie will open up and begin to play in the window you used for browsing.

Step 2

Click the "Subtitles" box that appears once the film has completely loaded. The box is located near the bottom right of the video box.

Step 3

Select the language you want for the captions. The available languages vary depending on the movie.
