Subtitles Vs. Closed Captions on Samsung Tv

Most people assume Subtitles and Closed captions are the same, But in reality, both terms are completely different with different goals. 

Subtitles were primarily made for those people who don’t understand the source language of the video. Like we see in various streaming devices such as Netflix, prime video, and more. 

For example, most people don’t understand the source language of anime shows. Thus, broadcasters provide subtitles in different languages to help people understand the content.

There can be an end number of languages available in subtitles depending on the streaming device and broadcaster. 

On the other hand, closed Captions (CC) were made for people with a hearing impairment. Through CC, most of the audio is communicated to the viewers. 

Along with the audio, closed captions also include sound effects, noise descriptions, and more. This is the major difference between subtitles and closed captions.
