Canvas - How do I view captions in a video?

Some videos within Canvas may contain closed-captioned files. You can view the captions in the closed-captioning menu.

Note: If you view a video in the Canvas by Instructure app, iOS devices can display captions created with WebVTT files. If you cannot view video captions on an iOS device, the caption type is not supported.
