You might not have a very large set of language options. If the language you’re looking for isn’t available then you can always add custom subtitles that fit your needs.

2. In-Video Preset Options

To help out those who may have difficulty reading the subtitles in their default format, Prime Video have added another menu under “Subtitle Settings” where you can select presets.

As you change the options you’ll notice that the text changes in the preview that you’ve selected.
