TL;DR: How do we turn on English captions for English language shows like RWBY.

We're a joint account used by our household when we want to watch anime together. One of our house-mates is autistic and has trouble understanding spoken dialog, but can read captions just fine. Last night, we went to watch RWBY, an English language show, and we couldn't figure out how to turn on English captions. It felt really unfair to our autistic room-mate because they couldn't understand what was going on. Is there a way we can turn on closed captioning for them ?

Unfortunately, CR only has subtitles; they do not provide captions, at least not currently. They provide subs as translations for spoken Japanese language, but not captions for shows that are dubbed or originally produced in English, like RWBY. You aren't the first to ask for that. People who are deaf would also benefit from that as well...
