Closed captioning and descriptive audio in RealPlayer SP for Mac

How do I watch clips with closed captioning or descriptive audio in RealPlayer SP for Mac OS X?

RealPlayer SP for Mac OS X supports both text captioning and descriptive audio for files (clips) that include these features. Text captioning converts audio into subtitles, and descriptive audio provides a running narration of the images that occur in a clip. These features make audio and video clips more accessible to people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing or who are blind or have low vision.

The makers of a clip can choose to make text captioning and descriptive audio available. In RealPlayer for Mac OS X, you can access these features when they are available in a clip:

1. Open RealPlayer for Mac OS X.
2. Click the RealPlayer menu, then Preferences.
3. Click the Content icon.
4. Under Accessibility, select one or both of the following check boxes:
- Use supplemental text captioning when available
- Use descriptive audio when available
5. Close the Content Preferences window.

Note: You may need to restart your player for the settings to take effect. If text captioning and descriptive audio do not work for a given clip, even after they are selected, this means that the clip maker has not provided these features.
