Netflix has updated its app to give TV users the option to customize the size and style of subtitles and closed captions.

This update gives subscribers the ability to choose from three sizes — small, medium, and large — as well as four styles/colors which include the default white text option, drop shadow (white text with black background), light (black text with white background) and contrast (yellow text with black background).

The update will roll out to TV users globally by the end of today.

Customisable Subtitles

As accessibility design gets more and more popular, we expect to see more updates like this in other streaming platforms to improve the viewing experience.
