How do I turn on subtitles?

Click to Play (streaming) and BBC iPlayer Downloads offer subtitles, but subtitles are not available for mobiles or portable devices at present.


If available, the Click to Play window will have the subtitles button (S) appear once you've started playing the programme (ie, after the BBC ident has played).
