How do I access Closed Captions?

Closed captions allow you to share the videos with a larger audience, including deaf or hard-of-hearing viewers and viewers who speak another language.

1. Open the video

Begin by opening the video that you want to play for your audience.

2. Click on the CC control

The majority of videos on the platform have closed captions. If you hover your mouse over the video you will see the video controls appear (play/pause/volume, etc). If the video has closed captions you can will see a little "CC" icon on the right hand side.
Clicking on this icon will allow you to turn on closed captions. Some videos allow you to choose from several different languages (i.e. English, French, or Spanish).
