    Closed Captioning Spacing

    Doug Lyle

      Closed captioning defaults to a double spaced letter format -  l i k e  t h i s .  Is there a way to change it so it has regular spacing?

          No, there's no way to control the spacing of characters in closed caption text. The spacing is effectively specified by the relevant captioning standard. The standards actually define the number of columns. CEA-608 has 32 columns and and Teletext has 40, regardless of the image aspect ratio; CSA-708 has 32 columns for 4:3 video but 42 for 16:9.
