How to Turn On the Closed Captioning on a Sony TV

By Abby Vaun

Closed captioning is available on almost all broadcast and cable television shows thanks to Federal Communication Commissions regulations. Closed captioning allows you to read the dialogue and sound effects on a television show while it is on. This is helpful for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. It's also a helpful tool if you need to watch TV at a low volume or in a noisy room. If you own a Sony television, you can turn the closed captioning on and off with your remote control.
