Respected Contributor

Does anybody know when additional languages will be available? (in my case Swedish).

@Laurie Pottmeyer maybe? :)

Hi @ChristianBergstrom

Your right, only available in English (US) during preview

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-live-captions-in-a-teams-meeting-4be2d304-f675-4b57-8...

Nothing on the M365 Roadmap or Teams Uservoice. Doesn't even say here with speaker attribution

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2020/07/08/reimagining-virtual-collaboration-futu...

So, unfortunately, no timeframe. There are several uservoices out there for live captions in different languages (and a massive one for spanish/portugeuse) but nothing confirmed, no ETA and again no uservoices picked up. I suspect that this will develop in future given the speaker attribution development

Hope that helps answers your question

Best, Chris

@Christopher Hoard Thanks Chris. I usually find information about most stuff but in this particular case I failed, so thanks for the confirmation! It's available for Live events so I thought somebody aught to know something ;)
