Popular streaming service Netflix has revealed a plethora of new subtitle customization tools. The new capabilities will allow users to customize how subtitles display on the site. Users will have the ability to adjust the text’s style and size, as well as toggle between tiny, medium, and big font sizes.
In addition, Netflix has added three additional choices for subtitles with varying backgrounds. These alternatives include Light (black text on a white background), Contrast (yellow text on a black background), and Drop shadow (white text on black background). According to the corporation, the newest improvements will improve consumers’ reading.
Formerly, the capabilities were only accessible to online users, but the customization function is now available globally, even to TV users. Netflix has seen a consistent increase in the number of its television viewers. In 2018, the corporation said that 70 percent of its viewers came via television.
Viewers with hearing impairments and auditory processing disorders will be able to customize their viewing experience thanks to the newest accessibility feature. Enhancing the wording of subtitles and closed captions, according to the business, would certainly increase the concentration of viewers with cognitive problems.
