Is there a way to move the position of the CC? Sometimes the CC is placed on top of subtitles (as when watching an int'l movie or when the news it streaming information at the bottom of the screen). What can I do to adjust the CC to display in other areas of the tv (OR) to adjust when subtitles are embedded in the program?
When you are in the app that you are watching (like Hulu), hit the * button on your Roku remote which should bring up your settings menu on the left side of the screen. Look for “accessibility “, and then closed caption. Change it from English to CC1 and it should move it to the bottom.
I'm late deafened and have needed to use closed captions (CC) for many years. I've never found a way to move the CC to a better position so it doesn't cover subtitles.
Changing my CC text style options helped me. I set both the background and window opacity to "Off" which makes them transparent. Then I'm able to see the subtitles that are behind the CC and can figure out or actually see what's being said. I also set my CC text size to a smaller size.
To change your CC options you need to do it through Roku, not through your TV menu. In Roku, go to "Settings", then to "Accessibility" then to "Captions Style". Select "Background Opacity" and set to "Off". Do the same with the "Window Opacity". If needed you can make the CC smaller by selecting "Text Size".
