With the Live Caption feature offered for Chrome, speeches in both audio content and videos can be transcribed in real time.
Live Caption, which appears as Google’s application to transcribe speeches in any audio recording, was first announced at Google I / 0 2019 only for Pixel smartphones. Later, Live Caption, which is also offered for other phones in the Android ecosystem, quietly came to Chrome, Google’s internet browser, according to the news in XDA Developers.
With the Live Caption feature offered for Chrome, speeches in both audio content and videos can be transcribed in real time. To use this feature, you need to turn on the Live Caption setting from the Accessibility section in Chrome settings.
Let’s also share that for now, this feature is only available for English. When the feature is activated, it automatically detects any audio or video content spoken in English and starts to produce live subtitles. The live caption feature, which appears as a small window, transmits all the spoken words to its user with a short delay.
Let’s also mention that the live caption window is not fixed and you can move it to the point you want on the screen. Live Caption feature is available on Mac, Windows, Linux and Chrome OS versions of Chrome. The Live Caption feature can be used for many content, from YouTube videos to Podcasts.
