Is there a way to turn captions on automatically on video start in a uwp application?

We have a .net xbox one uwp application that includes a MediaPlayerElement video player. The embedded captions in the dash streams we use work as expected, but there are instances where we would like captions to turn on at the start of the video without user input:

  • When a user has captions enabled in the xbox accessibility settings.

  • When a user enabled captions in a previous video session.



Preliminary research shows that this is either not feasible, or the solution is not obvious.

Is this feature possible, and if so how do we go about implementing it?

Hello,

​Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

We searched the UWP document about this but not found UWP has such API that can directly turn captions on in MediaPlayerElement programmatically. And if you still want to turn captions on automatically, you can go to Feedback Hub(Start menu-> Feedback Hub) to submit your feature request.
