Set subtitle, language, and closed captioning preferences
If your DVD provides them, you can use subtitles, soundtracks, and interactive menus in different languages. If your DVD includes closed captions, you can view them instead of subtitles.

Do one of the following:
In the Controller bar, click the Streams/Closed Captioning button.
In the Control Drawer, click and hold the Subtitle/Closed Captioning button.
Turn on subtitles or choose another language, if available.
For some discs, you may need to use the disc’s interactive menus to turn on and choose subtitles.
