On the Kindle Fire, for $158, does it have closed caption for the deaf on the movies?

I don't know, I have only used mine for reading. If someone doesn't come along soon with the answer I'm willing to try to find out.

It would depend on the encoding/encryption on the movies themselves, not a function of the Fire.

Folina, it's both. The movies must have captioning, and the player software must be able to decode it.

I have heard (but have no first-hand knowledge) that the player on the Fire HD supports the closed captioning that Amazon has recently begun adding to certain titles. I know for sure that the AIV app for iPad was updated just a couple of days ago to add this capability.
