Questions and Answers about Microsoft 365/Teams

Live captioning in Teams Microsoft Teams provides live captioning with speaker attribution in 28 languages by default. Meeting participants can turn on live captions from the meeting controls to view captions at the bottom of the meeting window. Live captions are not saved for later viewing.

Teams can detect what's said in a meeting and present real-time captions. And, if you've turned on the new meeting experience, your captions will include speaker attribution—so you'll see not only what's being said, but who's saying it. Note: People can choose not to be identified in captions.

To navigate to Live Captions, users would select the ellipses “More options” and then to “Turn on live captions (preview)” when they are in an audio or video call with at least 3 other users. Transcripts are automatically generated when a meeting is recorded, but only if the meeting language is set to English.

Note: Live captions and subtitles are only available for live events produced using Teams.
