Live Captions in Microsoft Teams is a feature that provides real-time transcription of spoken words during a meeting or a call. This feature is designed to help participants who are deaf or hard of hearing, or those who are in a noisy environment, to follow the conversation more easily. Live Captions can be turned on or off by the meeting organizer or the participant, and it supports multiple languages.
Live Captions in Microsoft Teams use automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology to transcribe spoken words into text. The ASR engine listens to the audio feed from the meeting or call and converts it into text, which is then displayed in real-time on the screen. The accuracy of the transcription depends on several factors, such as the quality of the audio feed, the clarity of the speakers' voices, and the complexity of the language used. Live Captions can also be customized to display in a specific font size and color to suit the user's preference.
Live Captions in Microsoft Teams offer several benefits to users, including improved accessibility, better comprehension, and increased engagement. By providing real-time transcription of spoken words, Live Captions make it easier for participants who are deaf or hard of hearing to follow the conversation and contribute to the discussion. They also help non-native speakers or those who are in a noisy environment to understand the content more clearly. Additionally, Live Captions can enhance the overall meeting experience by keeping participants engaged and focused on the topic at hand.
