Captioning on Audio and/or Video Meetings & Calls for EN-US
As being employer to several staff who is Deaf and reply on using subtitle when watching video. I was surprised to see no subtitle/closed captioned feature when I play a video called Introduction to Microsoft Team Product Tour (2.03 minutes video) as enclosed in this attachment.
We are happy to announce mobile support for live captions in English (US). Android and iOS users can now enjoy inclusive meetings on the go!

This was working yesterday and now, is not. You can click Live Captions and it shows the "CC" saying it's on but speaking does not show any text. Is it broken now?
Any updates on able to screen subtitles on meetings, video call or audio calls? This very useful for hard of hearing or deaf people.
our workplace was informed that your software provides Closed caption or they wouldn't have purchase it...where is the option?
So this is a huge lie and a marketing scheme??

we cannot enable this in meeting what are we doing wrong.
On recording meetings, if you are not the owner you can't turn on the closed caption. I would like to see the closed captions in a replay of the meeting.
It would be great to have live caption with the ability to save and edit file. And the steam could be longer, so I can refer back to the wording on longer sentences/statements.

Can you tell me if this is available in the UK? We have staff with hearing difficulties and would also be very useful for when call audio quality is poor (often!),
I've been looking at various setting in S4B & Teams and can't see where I can activate any subtiltes. Help would be appreciated. Many Thanks
Hello - On preview version we are observing issue.
Issue 1: During one to one call live call caption is not working.
Issue 2: During conference call (More than 2 participate) - User able to see option for live caption but while turning it on , only black strip is displaying at bottom of screen but no call caption.
In our office, it’s working on Macs but not Windows 10.
Check updates indicates that I have the latest version. Is there a setting I’m missing?

Will this feature be available in the UK in 2019?

As an Educational establishment - we MUST (WCAG) have this feature if we want to use Teams to educate and provide good accessibility tech for our staff.
Would also love to be able to save the captions in a file (request from an Educational Technologist)

Yay! My son and I will try this when it comes out.
I use captioning with Skype with my son - it works brilliantly. We both get pretty accurate text from our verbal conversations. Great when communicating with someone who is hearing impaired!
At least can someone from MSFT update us on this.
Hello team , any update on this ?
I know that real-time captioning and subtitles is available in Teams Live Events--and works fairly well. However, is that same functionality available in regular Teams meetings (i.e. not Live Events)? If so, how do you turn it on?
@Microsoft @Alex - is this still planned in the August update? Thanks!
Hello! Has there been any progress on this?
As a deaf person I need to follow the call during the meeting - not after the meeting. we dont' record all meetings.
