All instructors have the option of adding closed captions to videos lectures. If a course is captioned, this article outlines how you can turn the closed captions on or off.
Turn Closed Captions On or Off
If closed captions are available for a lecture, a closed captions icon will appear at the bottom right of the course player. Move your cursor to the icon and select the captions language you would like to see. To turn captions off, however, select the Off option.
You can also adjust the font size of the captions, and the background opacity for them, by clicking on Caption Settings. Then click on Font Size or Background Opacity to make the adjustments you wish to see. The option to have the captions appear under the course video can also be accessed in the caption settings.
Please note: If your account language is set to any other language than English, then captions in this language will appear automatically. If the course includes captions in your account language, then captions in this language will appear. If captions in your account language aren't available, then English captions would show instead.
You can turn the captions off at anytime by following the steps outlined above in the Turn Captions On or Off section. Please note that this turns captions off for all captioned courses.
For steps on how to change your account language, please refer to this support article.
