Does DVD architect allow me to create a closed captioning option for a DVD I want to create? It needs to be closed captioning (an option must exist for it to toggle on and off rather than stay on like subtitles). I have an .srt file prepared for this purpose.
DVDA does not support closed captioning. The toggling off and on of closed captions is normally controlled by the TV. Subtitles are controlled by the DVD and depending upon the player, can be toggled off and on.
Thank you so much for the detailed reply. May I ask - if I create a DVD using DVD architect and I attach a .srt or .scc file for captions, will it be able to be turned on/off by the viewer when watching on their TV or is that something that needs to be done by software outside of DVD architect?

A DVD will not recognize an attachment. It has to be encoded by the DVD authoring program. You might be able to create a NON-VIDEO DVD that has the video file with the CC as a side attachment (like youtube works) but I don't know how to do that.

Some players do not recognise the 'Subtitle off' command, however you can achieve the same effect by adding a second subtitle track, leave this empty and set the Subtitle Off button to the empty subtitle track.
