It seems that Yahoo has decided, for me, that I should listen to "Yahoo Finance" presentations and if not listen, as in mute, then it automatically goes to "closed caption". Only other option is to comply or Pause the presentation. I contacted Support and this the response I got from them.
"After speaking with the Finance team, we have determined that this is an intentional setting by the Finance team, deemed preferable as most users mute audio. This is a design decision by the Finance team and I will pass on your feedback about this automatic setting."

I guess if more users were to complain they might reconsider, but until then it is .. pause .. what an annoyance.
