How do I view captions in a video in the Rich Content Editor as a student?

Some videos within Canvas may contain closed captioning. You can enable captions in the video options menu.

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