closed captioning

When I go to watch tv online, shows (such as dexter) say closed captioning available and there is even a button once you start watching the show so you can choose how large you want the font ect. HOW DO I TURN IT ON? I cannot find this anywhere?

Re: closed captioning

OK nevermind figured it out... just clicking one of the font sizes will not work, you have to click the CC icon below the font sizes til the whole button is highlighted.  Not very user friendly...

Just click where it says CC or one of the font sizes and closed captioning will appear.

Re: closed captioning

i just saved this on Dr Who's latest episode and they did not turn on.  Please test this and confirm if they should be working.  I need to know if it is a problem with the website or with my computer.

**just TRIED this I meant to say.  I clicked on all the sizes several times but no subtitles appeared.  They do work on Royal Pains but that is probably because they also work on Hulu.  Dr Who does not work.
