Closed Captions (CCs) and Subtitles look similar, they’re designed for two different purposes. Subtitles provide a text alternative for the dialogue of video footage – the spoken words of characters, narrators, and other vocal participants.

Closed captions, on the other hand, not only supplement dialogue but other relevant parts of the soundtrack – describing background noises, phones ringing and other audio cues that need describing.
