Netflix now allows viewers to customize text and subtitles

Starting today, Netflix TV users can customize the size and style of subtitles and subtitles. This update gives subscribers the option to choose from three sizes (small, medium, and large) and four styles/colors, including the default option of white text, drop shadow (white text on a black background), light (black text on a white background) and contrast (yellow text on black background). The update will roll out to TV users around the world later today.

Previously, Netflix subscribers could only access these subtitle options, subtitle size, and subtitle style over the Internet. So it’s a welcome upgrade for viewers, especially as streaming on big screens like connected TVs, smart TVs and gaming consoles accounted for 77% of minutes streamed globally in the first quarter of 2022, according to the streaming company.

While it may seem like a minor upgrade, providing more styles, fonts, sizes and colors for subtitles and subtitles for TV users can greatly improve the viewing experience. For example, finding the right size and style of subtitles for the visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing can make a big difference. Note that Netflix now also offers a select number of titles with subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing (SDH). Subtitles and subtitles are also useful for viewers who do not understand the language.

There are many streaming services that allow users to change the size and style of subtitles, including Prime Video, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, Paramount+, Peacock, and Discovery+.

Today’s update from Netflix comes nearly a year after the streamer introduced badges for audio description and closed captioning, expanding to more than 11,000 hours of audio description in more than 30 languages.
