Live Caption is one of the best features ever developed by Google. This will brings an effective change in videos and audio clips. Last year on Google I/O, this amazing new Live caption was announced by search the giant. This feature will recognize the speed in any videos and audios, and then add subtitles to it in real-time.
Once you play any video on a certain platform, this feature will automatically detect the speech in that content. These features will probably work for all desktop platforms.
Importance of Live caption
Well, thus transcribing feature is very useful when you are getting the language on your video. Also whenever there is a situation when you cannot turn up the volume or you don’t have any speaker, you can know about the video with its subtitle.
Not only the online videos, but it will also add subtitles to your own recorded videos. I think this is one of the best ways for learning purposes. Now you can also easily learn through several video tutorials whose language is not understandable. You need not care about the language within the videos, you will get its subtitle in English which will be easily understandable.
For now the subtitle is only available in English, but Google has promised to bring support for other several languages.
