Q: How do I get Spanish captions on an English program?

A: Changing the captioned language on your TV, laptop, or iPad can vary depending on the platform or media player, but general process is similar on most of them and usually begins with finding the “CC” icon that indicates closed captioning features.

English programs that are captioned in English and Spanish include Sunday Night Football and “Dateline” on NBC. To access the Spanish captions, find your CC menu and select CC3. CC1 always hosts the primary caption language, and CC3 hosts Spanish, when available.

“Over-the-top” streaming media services like Netflix, iTunes, and Hulu all provide captions or subtitles in multiple languages. Check their accessibility menus for details.
