Keep in mind that unlike on Netflix, not all content on Amazon Prime has closed captions.

2. If your device supports it, you can also adjust the color and size of the text by using the same menu.

You can also select the subtitle track you want to use before playing the content. Simply click on “Subtitles” under the title of the movie or TV show to turn subtitles on or off before clicking “Play”.


Most Amazon Prime content includes various options including subtitles, audio descriptions, or alternative tracks, but they are not the same on all devices.
