(Seattle, WA) -- Amazon is hoping to make it easier to understand the dialogue heard in its movies and shows.

A new feature called Dialogue Boost is now available on select Amazon Prime Video original movies and series. It allows viewers to increase the volume of what's being said in relation to background music and effects.

At launch, Dialogue Boost can be used on series like "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" along with films such as "The Big Sick" and "Being the Ricardos."

Amazon said the feature will be available on more titles throughout the year.
