Hi All,

 

I have a requirement for support of over 6 languages for captioning for Teams live events, want to potentially have up to 12 at one time.

 

Teams meetings is also not fit for purpose in this scenario, once the meeting goes over the 1k capacity the view-only attendees only have the option for English captioning.

 

Does anyone know of a potential workaround or partner solution that could be used for this?

Hi @Johnny_McHugh,

 

As noted there is a limit for translated languages in a Live Event, this cannot be raised. The eventual goal will be to leverage the Meetings stack together with View Only, which will be updated to support Live Subtitles (that is, translated captions similar to what we have in Live Events today) - this is scheduled for release in late H1/early H2CY22.
