How to Turn off Closed Captions on Roku

Turning closed captions on or off Press Home on your Roku remote. Scroll and select Settings. To open the Captions menu, select Accessibility. If Accessibility is not listed, select Captions. Select Captions mode and choose when captions appear. Off – captions never appear.

Closed captions can be helpful when watching TV, but sometimes they can be bothersome, especially if they appear out of nowhere. In this blog post, we will show you how to remove closed captioning on your Roku device that’s showing up on your TV.

First, click on the home screen button on your Roku remote. Then, scroll down to where you see the settings button. On some Roku’s, it’ll say closed captioning, but on others, it may say accessibility. Click on accessibility, and then change the caption mode to off. That should do it.

However, when you go to watch a movie, you may need to turn off closed captions again. To do this, point down with your remote, and then click on the option for English original with subtitles. Click on subtitles, then go to your right and click enter. This should turn off the closed captions.

Lastly, we want to note that there is a voice that can be very annoying on Roku. If you’ve never heard it before, you should try it out. It’s a female voice that’s like a cairn, and it can be super annoying. If you need to turn it off, we will link a video at the end of this post that shows you how to do it.

In conclusion, closed captions can be helpful, but sometimes they can appear out of nowhere and be bothersome. Follow the steps above to turn off closed captions on your Roku device.
