I know that Teams offers live captions/subtitles with Live Events.  Does that same functionality exist for regular Teams meetings (i.e. not live events)?  If so, how do I turn that on?

 

Thanks.

This hasn’t rolled out to my knowledge but it is coming and something they announced at enterprise connect. So one of these days :).

@Greg Davidson This feature dropped yesterday on selected Teams tenantsLive-captioning.jpg

Does anyone know if the voice processing is done in local data centres - or is it all routed through the US? Struggling to get an answer from any channel, which leads me to suspect the latter ... and which would force us to turn it off.

 

Edit: subsequent testing indicates significant dropouts in captions - entire sentences are missing. This suggests latency issues of processing going half way around the world.

Hi @Ilya Bukshteyn   @Sohail Tariq -- can you comment on whether translated captions are on the MTR roadmap? I see a roadmap entry for translated captions in Live Events and one for in-language captions for MTR. But not one where MTR content can be translated/captioned. Thx!

@june-m-dayon hi June, this is not MTR specific. We will have translated captions on MTR when Teams has translated captions in Teams meetings (not Live Events).  I can't comment on that timing though sorry.
