Using Subtitles

When they are available, you can run the subtitles track on DVDs to assist you in one of two ways:

  •     display the English translation
  •     display the written French to reinforce your understanding of the audio track. 

To turn on subtitles:

  1. Go to DVD's Main Menu.
  2. Subtitles option is often on the top level; otherwise look in Features or Options.
  3. Select the language you want to display in the subtitles.
  4. Play movie.
