Stream, Microsoft 365 Experts
From Microsoft Corporation Technical Bulletin MC312492 · Published Jan 8, 2022 · Last updated Feb 4, 2022
Updated February 04, 2022: We will not be moving forward with rolling this out to organizations in GCC, GCC-High or DoD at this time. We are planning on these in the future and will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed. We apologize for any inconvenience.
This new feature will enable users, with edit permission to a video stored in OneDrive for Business or a SharePoint document library, to upload, download, and delete captions in the WebVTT file format. This feature will also let users download a Teams Live Transcript as a WebVTT file. They will then be able to edit that file in a text or VTT editor and re-upload it to provide more accurate captions and transcript for their recording.
Any viewer of the video with a transcript will be able to display it as closed captions inside the video player and as a transcript in the transcript pane next to the video .
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85610.
When this will happen:
Targeted release (entire org): will start rolling out early March and be complete by end of March.
Standard: will start rolling out in early April and be complete by end of April.
How this will affect your organization:
A user who does not have a transcript, but has edit permission on a video will be able to navigate to Media Settings in the player and use the Transcript and captions setting to upload captions. Users will also be able to download and delete the caption file.
You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate. Help and support
