What is Google Live Caption, and how does it work?

by -

techno.rentetan.com – If you’re deaf or prefer watching movies with subtitles, Google’s Live Caption tool will be a welcome addition to your experience. Pixel 2 and later models of Google’s Pixel smartphones, as well as a few other Android cellphones, are all compatible.

Are you familiar with the Google Live Caption feature?

New automated captioning system Live Caption was unveiled at Google I/O in May 2019.

As a result, it provides real-time subtitles for any audio on your mobile device (including voice calls on Pixel phones). An accessibility feature for the 466 million deaf or hard of hearing individuals in the globe. However, it can also be useful for commuters on a noisy train or parents who don’t want to wake their newborn while listening to a podcast.

Live Caption may be used to subtitle movies, podcasts, and audio messages without the requirement for Wi-Fi or internet.

It’s not clear how Google Live Caption works

Using Live Caption does not necessitate a data or Wi-Fi connection on your Android device. In order to activate Live Caption on your Android phone, simply press the volume button down. This symbol, a square shape with lines and dots in it, may be tapped to switch Live Caption on or off, located under the volume slider.

Transcriptions may be inaccurate if the sound quality is poor; although Google is constantly improving the technology.

  1. Open Settings on your mobile device.
  2. Tap Sound, then Live Caption.
  3. These options may be found in the Settings menu:
    • Activate or deactivate Live Caption.
    • Whether or not to use profanity, hide it or exhibit it.

However, Google has said that Live Caption will support other languages in the future.

Does Live Caption work with these?

On the Pixel 4, Google offered Live Caption first. If you’re using a compatible Android smartphone, like the Samsung Galaxy S or OnePlus flagship, you’ll be able to take use of it.
