Lovers of original version movies can improve their understanding of other languages by turning on subtitles, which is also useful for those with hearing difficulties. Unfortunately, there are times when this option is not embedded in the film file itself, or it does not have subtitles in the desired language, so it is necessary to use players that have this option.
Some video players allow subtitles to be added to movies that do not have them
And not only add them, but some of the following programs are also able to search the Internet for the appropriate subtitles and configure the way in which they appear, something that avoids having to search for them specifically and add them.
