For this, you need to visit your account > Profile & Parental Controls > Subtitle Appearance > Font Size.

Change Font Colour

Interestingly, Netflix even allows you to change the font color of subtitles, which you might not be aware of. For those who don’t like subtitles distracting from the visuals, you can even make the text semi-transparent. For this, you can go to account > Profile & Parental Controls > Subtitle Appearance > Colour.

Change Background

The Netflix app even lets you add different background colors. This basically means that users can create a solid background around the text that appears on screen to make readability even better. To enable this, just visit your Account > Profile & Parental Controls > Subtitle Appearance > Background.

Add Shadow

Netflix also lets you add a drop shadow against the subtitles for better visibility. Choose from a few effects to help separate text from the background. You can also change the color of the shadow or the outline. For this, you can go to your account > Profile & Parental Controls > Subtitle Appearance > Shadow.

Choose Closed Caption

Closed Captions (CC) work like subtitles, but with the addition of descriptions of background noises, tracks playing in the background, and or names of characters who may be speaking off-camera. These are specially designed for those hard of hearing; and therefore describes elements of the sound they might otherwise miss. For this, you play a title > Go to “audio & subtitles” > Select “Audio Descriptions.”
