Video captions make your video content more accessible to viewers. Captions can even just be helpful if you’re in an environment where you can’t watch with audio.

    Unfortunately, not all creators caption their videos. So now, Google has developed their Live Caption feature for Chrome. This tool will generate real-time captions for audio content on your browser. This works with social media sites, podcasts, radio content, personal video libraries and more.

    Live Caption will work online and offline so that all content you play in chrome can be accessible to you. To turn this on, go to Chrome Settings, choose Advanced and go to the Accessibility section. This is currently available globally but only supports English at this time.
