Label closed captions with the speaker
Label closed captions with the name of the speaker
The accuracy of Closed Captions is amazing, Seems to be at least 80-90% for those that are speaking clearly.. It's great.
However, with out being able to have a Label to associate the speaker with the text, it's very difficult to find this useful for those needing it.
Thank you for adding Close Captions and hope to see this added too.

Please add this feature ASAP so teachers can learn how to use it before they start teaching full time in the upcoming weeks. Our DHH (deaf or hard-of-hearing) students would greatly benefit from having accurate CC to read, especially if they can see it beside the person signing at the same time. (Perhaps offer a side-by-side view?)
It would be wonderful if the captions could be attached to the speaker, as seen during a Google Meet. A colleague shared the attached screenshot as an example. As of now, within a class Teams meeting, students have no way of knowing who said what. They cannot easily distinguish between a teacher's comments and that of a classmate--especially if they are in elementary school and are just learning to read.
Thank you for continuing to listen to (and act upon) our suggestions to improve Microsoft for use with students!

It would be great to be able to determine who is speaking by labeling the closed captions. This is my vote and voice.

I believe this should be added.

Closed captions are a must. Teams is not just for the enabled.
Second this. please take a look at how Google Meet is implementing this, much more easier to follow the conversation!

Either label the closed captions or place the speaker's video or icon to the left of the captions instead of the right. Very awkward for left to right readers.
