How to enable closed captioning in iTunes U for iPhone and iPad

If you use iTunes U in order to view and listen to courses, you may have noticed that some of those courses have support for closed captioning. For users with disabilities, iTunes U also allows you to turn on closed captioning by default so whenever it's supported, it will use it.

Here's how:

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Scroll down and tap on iTunes U
  3. Turn On the option for closed captioning.

iTunes U will now obey that setting and implement closed captioning for any lessons or courses that support it.

Great tip! But how do I search for iTunes U content that is closed captioned? I'm not sure how to find those.
