Live Translated Captions in Meetings and Calls

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC420049 · Published Aug 26, 2022

Message Summary

Users will now be able to choose the Live Captions in the language they prefer, with the help of Microsoft Cognitive Service Speech Translation Capabilities. This will help users fully participate in meetings where the spoken language may not be their most comfortable language to use.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 94843.

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out to worldwide and GCC at mid-September and expect to be completed by early-October.

GCC-H and DoD will be started to roll out at mid-October and expect to be completed by early-November.

How this will affect your organization:

Today, users can select just the spoken language, and the Live Captions will be in the same language as they selected. Please find the documentation here.

When this feature is released, users who turn on Live Captions will be able to see the menu options for Live Translated Captions in the “Subtitles” menu. By selecting any translation language, users will see the Translated Captions in the language they selected.

The spoken language is selected for everyone in the meeting, while the translation language for the Live translated Captions is selected only for the individual user.

List of supported spoken languages:

English (US), English (Canada), English (India), English (UK), English (Australia), English (New Zealand), Arabic (Arab Emirates), Arabic (Saudi Arabia), Chinese (Simplified China), Chinese (Traditional, Hong Kong SAR), Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan), Czech (Czechia), Danish (Denmark), Dutch (Belgium), Dutch (Netherlands), French (Canada), French (France), Finnish (Finland), German (Germany), Greek (Greece), Hebrew (Israel), Hindi (India), Hungarian (Hungary), Italian (Italy), Japanese (Japan), Korean (Korea), Norwegian (Norway), Polish (Poland), Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian (Romania), Russian (Russia), Slovak (Slovakia), Spanish (Mexico), Spanish (Spain), Swedish (Sweden), Thai (Thailand), Turkish (Turkey), Ukrainian (Ukraine), Vietnamese (Vietnam)
