Everyone can enjoy a cinematic experience with assistive technologies on Apple TV. If you’re deaf or hard of hearing, you’ll find closed caption support for your favourite TV shows and thousands of movies. If you’re deaf-blind, you can use VoiceOver and a braille display to navigate and access closed caption tracks in movie content. And the Accessibility Shortcut makes it easy to use the features you need most.

Closed Captions Customisable captions for movies and TV shows.

Closed captions on Apple TV

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 movies or buying TV shows from the iTunes Store. 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‑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.
