Part 3. More about Subtitle & CC: What's the Difference
In most countries, there is no difference between subtitles and Closed Caption. But both in US and Canada, subtitles are not the same with CC. Generally speaking, subtitles are the words printed over a film in a foreign language to translate what is being said by the actors. In other words, subtitles are to show the video's dialogue in written form. CC, short for closed caption or closed captioning, usually include subtitles as well as a written description of what is occurring in their videos, such as the identify of speakers and their tone of speakers, for the views who have trouble in hearing or understanding the sound.
