Netflix app for Windows 10 and NVDA


Lino Morales
 

Yes their is a WPA for Netflix. I use it all the time. I use it with Narrator however. NVDA seems to do OK reading the HTML headings etc. but to me it seems slow navagating the app.

Hi


To turn on sub titles it is in the same place as audio description in the player.


In my case when audio description is turned on it stays on for all shows that have audio description until it is turned off which is never.


It would have to be the same idea for sub titles that have it.


The last time I used the web version it is very accessible along with the app on the phone and I think it was the same on my tv.

If there is a app for windows 10 I have not used it.

Lately I use a google smart speaker with a chrome cast to watch netflix and another page that tells me all the shows that are audio described for me to browse through. Not sure for sub titles but from what I hear there is a lot out on there platform but may be not for some languages.

The following should help.


How to turn the closed captioning or subtitles on or off when viewing Netflix content.
1. Launch the Netflix app.
2. Select a TV show or movie.
3. Select Audio & Subtitles from the options panel.
4. Select your preferred audio or subtitle options.
5. Press Back to return to the options panel.
6. Select Play.


Hope it helps.

Tea,

           I am not trying to be dense here, but thorough.  So it's not an issue of getting those to read aloud, you use other means to have them read?  What I'm trying to nail down definitively is you're not talking about something like audio description, but just want to be able to enable/disable subtitles.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.

Yes, I'm searching for a setting to turn on titles/subtitles.

Tea,

Just to be clear, you're looking for a setting that causes titles (or maybe subtitles) to be read during a film?  Having an exact setting name, if you know it, would be helpful.

Hi Brian,


on their web platform, I didn't find the option to turn on reading titles during a film, that's the only reason. I don't have any negative comments on their site, it's fully accessible.

While there are definitely some instances where I personally prefer an app, when it comes to dealing with things such as Netflix, I generally find it much easier to log in to their websites and use their webpages than Windows-based apps.

What is the advantage to a Windows-based app in this specific instance?
