Allow live captions to work during screen sharing
I was part of a "Accessibility in Teams and Immersive Reader for All" live training and the live captions did not work. The moderator told me it was because the person was going to be screen sharing.
I tried it later myself and they were right, it doesn't work, at least from the hosts side. I didn't have anyone else on with me.
They still could have had the captions on when they weren't screen sharing...
I have multiple Deaf and Hard of Hearing coworkers as well as D/HH students who could benefit from this.
Great idea, however I don't think they'll take much notice as this part of the community doesn't get as many views, thus fewer votes than the rest of the forums.
Another way around this is an expensive one, however I've got a google pixel 4a and google transcribe. I plan the speakers near the phone and it gives me captions for when I'm presenting a document or sharing my screen so I can still understand what they're saying.

Please include the Accessibility feature for Live-Captions in MS teams. This is a key feature for those who have hearing disabilities. I know several people who are deaf or have hearing difficulties and they tell me that this disability is the most difficult for people to know about because it is a "hidden" disability - if you don't know that someone has a hearing disability, you will be unaware of it unless they or someone else tells you about it.

Please include the Accessibility feature for Live-Captions during MS Teams. It's a minimum to allow people with disabillities to participate.
They should allow captions!
Please include the Accessibility feature for Live -Captions during MS Teams meeting as this would be very useful for people with hearing disabilities. I have personally worked with one of my colleague who is deaf and dumb and seen the painstaking experiences that he faced since there was no Live-Captions being generated
