Live Captions in Teams meetings

Live Captions in Teams meetings.

Teams can detect what’s said in a meeting and present real-time captions.

If you’ve turned on the new meeting experience, your captions will include speaker attribution—so you’ll see not only what’s being said, but who’s saying it.

Putting it in to practice

The next time you are in a Teams meeting why not try out Live Captions.

To make sure your live captions are as accurate as possible, try to follow these best practices:

  • Speak clearly, slowly, and directly into the mic. As your distance from the mic increases, captions may become less accurate.
  • Avoid locations with background noise.
  • Avoid having multiple people speak at the same time.
  • Use the highest-quality Teams-certified equipment available to you.
