Closed captioning defaults to on

Frequent Visitor

Closed captioning defaults to on

On the Xfinity stream mobile app (iPad) my closed captioning has defaulted to "on". I have to turn it off rather than on when I want it? Is this new, or did I accidentally set a default? This started about two week ago, and I can't figure it out.

 

Thanks.

I don't have an iPad, but on my android phone you can go to Settings, then click the wheel cog icon thing (?) for more settings.

 

Then click Accessibility, then Closed Caption Options. There is a toggle at the top of that page to turn on/off.

 

Maybe iPad version has similar?

Re: Closed captioning defaults to on

This issue is unresolved.
iPhone settings do not affect the closed captioning in the Stream app.
It has been defaulting to ‘on’ for some time, and has to be turned off whenever the app is restarted or the channel is changed.
Is there a fix for this??
