As mentioned in the title, the third season of RWBY doesn't use subtitles despite saying it's available. Any suggestions?

RWBY is American-made and English is the original language used so there's no need for English subtitles (and as far as I know CR doesn't offer closed captions.)

What are you seeing that suggests that an English subtitled version should be available?

Aww I see I was just confused. To me, it is important since hearing impaired.

But this is a screenshot of a listing of sub options available:

Ah, I see. I can only guess that that they put English in that list so it wouldn't look completely inaccessible to English-language users, but it certainly is misleading. Since this is a pretty unusual case it probably seemed the best solution.

However, it might be something you want to point out to Crunchyroll, or even to request that shows in English (either cases like RWBY, or English dubs) have a closed caption option for folks who have hearing impairment. (I know there's at least one other user who's expressed disappointment about the lack of such.) You can give feedback directly by contacting customer support via this form: /help?topic=contact
