This feature is exclusive to Java Edition. 

Subtitles, as they appear in-game.

Subtitles (also known as captions) are a feature which display text for sounds in-game. This feature is mainly intended for players who have hearing impairments, are deaf, or play with sounds off. They can also be used for hearing quieter sounds, locating sounds, or identifying sounds a player doesn't recognize.


When subtitles are turned on, a black box appears in the bottom right corner, which lists sounds in the world that are nearby to the player. If the sounds are offscreen, "<" or ">" point in the direction the sound is coming from. As the sound fades away, the text also fades, becoming less white.

All sounds (whether environmental, from entities, block updates, or other sources) have their own individualized subtitles. For entities, the entity is displayed followed by a specific verb, e.g. "Rabbit squeaks" or "Villager mumbles". However, the object is not specified for removing or placing blocks and the sound of footsteps.

Subtitles can be enabled in the "Music & Sounds" or "Accessibility Settings" sections of the options menu.


Below are available subtitles.
