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

Closed Captions Customizble captions for movies and podcasts.

Apple TV supports closed captioning, so those who are deaf or hard of hearing can fully enjoy thousands of movies. Just look for the CC or SDH icon when selecting your movie on the Apple TV app or the iTunes Store. You can even customize 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.
