Many full programs are closed captioned. When the show starts playing (after any advertisements) look for the CC button in the player controls to activate the captions.
Some types of content are not yet available with closed captioning, including digital-only, time-sensitive news clips. Also, some clips taken from full programs lose their captions in the editing process.
We understand that closed captioning is important to many Canadians and CBC is working hard toward the eventual provision of captions on all new content online.
We provide Described Video on a variety of content on CBC Gem and in our CBC Gem app for iOS and Android. Please click here for instruction on how to active Described Video on Gem.
