Closed captioning has never been easier or more personalized with the arrival of digital captions. With DIRECTV, you simply push the yellow button on the remote to turn on the captions or subtitles. (I prefer the subtitles because the font is yellow and easier for me to read.) Also, if you are sick of the white text in the big black box, you can now personalize your closed captioning. With Cox HDTV cable service (as well as a few other providers), you now have the option to customize your closed-captioning display. You can choose your font, size, position, alignment and even color. Simply press the MENU button, select Closed Captioning, and then use the arrow keys to highlight your desired options. You can even set your closed captions to transparent so the background doesn’t cover too much of the picture.
