There doesn't seem to be an option for turning on subtitles on ITV Player. The last post I can find on here regarding this is two years old.... Surely they must be available now?!
Sorry for being flippant, Lin, but I see this is your first post - if you were one of the people posting about those sorts of issues 2 years or more ago (like me), then you would have accepted the reality that posting those sorts of questions doesn't mean anyone will take any notice. So we might as well enjoy ourselves with a bit of humour..... Nothing personal - but don't hold your breath - or jump to eminently sensible and logical conclusions. Sense and logic don't go far on this forum.
Are subtitles available on ITV players on other platforms, do we know?
There is a new post in this Conversation, but it is at the bottom of the thread.
If, when you see 'Last Reply: ' against an item on the Home Page (Conversations) you click or tap the name of that last poster, you will be taken not just into the thread, but actually to that very posting, so you can reply in sequence.
It is particularly useful in a case like this, where I am replying to your comment, and not at the very bottom of the thread.
I can't believe I can't get sub titles on ITV! I usually watch mostof the BBC dramas on catch up as I can have sub titles on and just assumed I'd be able to on ITV. (Which goes to show how much there is worth watching on ITV since I'veonly just found out - I was going to watch The Secret butI can't hear it
Quite frankly I find this continued and stagnant situation unacceptable. The technical needs and requirements for subtitles were/are in the first core draft of YouView specifications and yet four years down the line both OFCOM and the Govt haven't made such accessibility mandatory, even though such is now technically possible. Joke.
The Players are built by the channels, I'm sure with some input and guidance from YouView on the interfacing needed, but YouView are not in a position to add the subtitling feature to anybody's Player.
That the BBC iPlayer can provide subtitles demonstrates that there is likewise no obstacle to subtitles in the interface provided by YouView to the Players.
Contact itv and deprecate their lack of subtitles on YouView; one genuinely disgruntled customer is worth a phalanx of representations from YouView to the broadcaster.
maybe be worth contributing to.
