Can I watch programmes with subtitles or signing on my BBC iPlayer iPad app?

***Updated 22 May 2013***

Yes. Where available, you can activate subtitles from the media player controls. Simply tap the "S" icon when streaming a programme.

We're also working on subtitles for programme downloads and we'll update this FAQ once this feature is available.
