How to Get Subtitles on Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video is a popular streaming platform that offers a wide selection of TV shows, movies, and original content. While most of the content is in English, the platform also offers subtitles in multiple languages to enhance the viewing experience for users who are deaf or hard of hearing or those who prefer to watch content in a language other than their native one. However, not all content on Amazon Prime Video comes with subtitles, but luckily, there are ways to add them.
Here’s how to get subtitles on Amazon Prime Video:
Step 1: Check if subtitles are available
Before going through the trouble of getting subtitles for a show or movie, make sure that subtitles are available for that particular content. To check for subtitles, look for the “CC” icon in the player window on the show or movie page. If the “CC” icon is present, it means that subtitles are available.
Step 2: Turn On Subtitles
Once you have confirmed that subtitles are available, you can turn them on in the player window. Click on the “CC” icon in the lower right-hand corner of the player window, and select your preferred language from the list of available subtitle options.
Step 3: Use Amazon Prime Video’s Subtitle Settings
If you have a preference for how subtitles appear on the screen, Amazon Prime Video’s subtitle settings will come in handy. To access subtitle settings, click on the “Settings” icon in the player window, and select “Subtitle Settings” from the drop-down menu. Here, you can change the font, size, color, and background of the subtitles according to your preferences.
Step 4: Get Subtitles for Content Without Them
If subtitles are not available for a particular show or movie, there are a couple of ways you can add subtitles. One way is to use an external subtitle source. There are plenty of websites out there that offer subtitles for movies and TV shows, so you can search for the subtitles you need and download them to your device. Once you have downloaded the subtitles, you can add them to the Amazon Prime Video player window using the “CC” icon we discussed earlier.
Another option is to use Amazon’s Subtitle Preferences. Amazon has a program called Amazon Captioning Services which lets content creators add closed captions to their work. It is especially useful if the creator of the content on Amazon Prime Video enabled captioning services on Amazon.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Content with Subtitles
Once you have added the subtitles to Amazon Prime Video, sit back and enjoy your content with subtitles that suit your preferences.
In conclusion, Amazon Prime Video’s subtitles feature enriches the viewing experience for users who find it hard to follow the audio or enjoy different languages. It is easy to turn on subtitles for content that has them and even easier to customize the subtitles. For content that does not have subtitles, you can use an external source or Amazon captioning services to ensure the content’s accessibility. Enjoy your content with Amazon Prime Video’s subtitles!
