Prior to providing the solution, we thought to share the root cause for the Right-to-Left (RTL) alignment issue in Closed Caption (CC). One of our clients, who is a leading business trading company in Canada wanted to help their global workforce to get awareness of the ethical standards of business.

We took up the challenge and landed with a solution that works with (Right-to-Left) RTL alignment of CC text in Articulate Storyline 360.
