Do courses have closed captioning [CC], or subtitles, available?


All of the Zenva Academy lesson videos that use the Azure Video player come with an option to enable closed captions/subtitles. This includes lesson videos even those that are under our free courses.

Step-by-step instructions

Follow the steps below to enable the closed captions (subtitles) on any lesson videos:

Note: You only need to enable the subtitles in one video, and it will automatically turn ON the subtitles on consecutive videos.

Step 1

While watching a lesson, click the Closed Caption button on the bottom video bar. If you do not see this bar, tapping the screen should bring it up.

Step 2

If Closed Captions are on, you should see a checkmark next to the English option. If this is not the case, you can simply tap the English option to turn them on.
