Some DVD players cannot handle closed captions. Cheaper or older hardware players sometimes strip out the closed caption data. Players that have a progressive scan mode sometimes block captions when in this mode. And anything that's connected with an HDMI cable can't pass through captions.Most software players that you use when you play a DVD on your computer don't have any way to decode the captions. Windows Media Player can display DVD captions, and Apple DVD Player can display pop-on captions but not roll-up style captions. Certain paid versions of WinDVD and PowerDVD have CC capability. Look in your player's preferences to see if there are any closed caption options. Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day don't forget to rate me. thanks, REymond
VHS tapes u can't turn off Captioning as(subtitles to u) because the technology was not there yet.Captioning put on to help the hearing impair and the deaf to able to watch the movie too.Only DVD movies Discs and Blu Ray movies Discs give u this option on the main menu of the movies.
Movies said have CC close captioning sometimes just an add on print.Must go to the movies main Menu.To see if it have a Title on the main menu said SUBTITLES English,Spanish or French.Press that SUBTITLES to get close captioning printing words on the screen.But if u push the underline word said SUBTITLES,nothing is showing up on the screen,than the DVD movie disc have a problems or the add on print said CC is a lies.That the world for u,nothing are 100%.
U can't not stop profanity,if u watch NC17,PG13 or Rated R DVD movies.Captioning CC1,2,3 dosen't effect the DVD movie.It only have captioning on the tv that in tv brocasting shows,not in the DVD movie.If u want no profanity in movies watch PG movies.
