Everyone can enjoy a cinematic experience with assistive technologies on Apple TV. Closed captioning is available for your favourite TV shows and thousands of movies. You can use VoiceOver to access subtitles with a braille display. And the Accessibility Shortcut makes it easy to use your favourite features.

Closed Captions Customisable captions for movies and TV shows.

Apple TV supports closed captioning, so those who are deaf or hard of hearing can fully enjoy TV episodes and thousands of movies. Just look for the CC or SDH icon when buying or renting shows and movies from the iTunes Store or Apple TV app. You can even customise captions with different styles and fonts, including styles that are larger and outlined for better legibility. For those who are deaf and blind, Apple TV lets VoiceOver users access closed caption and subtitle tracks through their braille displays.

Accessibility Shortcut Get quick access to your favourite features.

Quickly turn closed captions on and off using the Accessibility Shortcut. Once the shortcut is enabled in Apple TV, you can simply triple-click the Menu button to access your preferred accessibility features.
