I love closed caption.... but I find the text size too dominating.  Is there a way of making the closed caption smaller?

So...... Adjusted the Closed Captioning font size in the Accessibility settings. Set the CC to on, then upon selecting a show, pressed the down button on the remote, and toggled the CC to show it with the smaller font.

There is an option for sizing in the Accessibility settings, but Closed Captioning seem to be toggled elsewhere in the system. In Accessibility, Closed Captioning needs to be set to 'on' to be off on the shows! You can also turn CC on or off by pressing the down button on the remote, while watching the channel, but this seems to use the large text.  Haven't delved far enough to learn fully how to manage this function.

Big thanks for the Accessibility page.

  • went to small with a 50% transparency.
  • found changes don't happen immediately.  Had to do a Force Stop on Pik app.
  • Additional changes somehow made the Pik app disappear from the Running Apps.  Had to restart the box.
