4. Displaying Subtitles

Enabling subtitles to display for your project

Prerequisite Topics

This page assumes you have prior knowledge of the following topics. Please read them before proceeding.

Subtitles should be enabled by default, but if you need to check that they are on, there is a checkbox in Project Settings.

  1. Open Project Settings.

  2. Under General Settings, locate the Subtitles section, then make sure the Subtitles Enabled box is checked.


Now, when you trigger the Quest NPC's dialogue, the accompanying subtitle text shows at the bottom of the screen.


Subtitles will not display unless there is a Sound Wave set in your Dialogue Wave for the context that is currently happening.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
