Viewing closed-caption subtitles on a television set can enhance your viewing experience if you suffer from hearing loss. These subtitles transcribe the dialogue spoken on television shows and display the words in text format at the bottom of the screen. If you can't see the closed-caption subtitles on your Sony television set, you will need to activate this option from the receiver's "Settings" menu.
