  1. Open Windows Media Player.
  2. If the menu bar with commands such as "File", "Play", and "Tools" is not visible in the Windows Media Player window, press CTRL+M to open this menu bar.
  3. Open the Play menu, then point to Lyrics, Captions, and Subtitles.
  4. Enable the command that reads "On if Available" or "Captions".
  5. Open the Tools menu, then click Options.
  6. Go to the Security tab.
  7. Mark the "Show local captions when present" checkbox.

Once captions are enabled in this way, when you run SEER-MHOS_Training.asx, with the .wmv and .smi files in the same directory, you will see the caption text displayed as the video plays.
