Office 365 - Microsoft Teams - Use Live Captions in a Teams Meeting

Information about how to use live captions in a Teams meeting.

*Note: Information is provided by Microsoft Support's article called "Use live captions in a Teams meeting"



(Desktop version)

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

*Note: Live captions are a preview feature in Microsoft Teams, and they're only available in English (US) for now. Enjoy your sneak peek!



Live captions can make your meeting more inclusive to participants who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, people with different levels of language proficiency, and participants in loud places by giving them another way to follow along.

*Note: Teams doesn't save captions.

Turn captions on and off

To use live captions in a meeting, go to your meeting controls and select More options  > Turn on live captions (preview).


To stop using live captions, go to the meeting controls and select More options  > Turn off live captions (preview).
