Live captions and live transcripts are now available for Microsoft Teams on the web.
Microsoft has unveiled an update for its Teams on Web video conferencing system that adds a number of new features.Microsoft is adding backdrop effects for Teams on Web with this latest version, enabling users to apply custom backgrounds like blur.Before, only users of the Teams programme could access these unique backdrops.Additionally, Teams on Web users no longer need to open a new window in order to read captions from a CART provider within the conference window.With the most recent version, Teams on Web will now offer live captioning in 27 additional languages, including Hindi.
Microsoft has announced that it would be enhancing Microsoft Teams on Web with a number of new capabilities in a blog post.The company is included backdrop effects in the list of new capabilities, which were already available in Teams’ application version.During a video conference or meeting, users can now opt to blur the background or pick from a variety of Microsoft-provided backgrounds.It should be remembered that changing the background or obscuring it may not prevent other meeting attendees from seeing sensitive information.
Users of Microsoft Teams on the Web are now able to see captions from a CART provider inside the conference window rather than a separate one.The feature can be enabled by users through their meeting preferences.The live captions with speaker attribution feature, which enables users to see who is speaking and what they are saying, is also being added to the web version of the video conferencing platform.Microsoft has added 27 new spoken languages, including Hindi, German, Portuguese (Brazil), Japanese, and more, to Teams on Web for captions.These recently acquired languages will also be able to use the live captioning service.
Live transcripts for the aforementioned newly added languages are also being added with the new upgrade to Microsoft Teams on the Web.During a video or audio conference, this feature will make it simple for users to monitor and evaluate talks that are taking place but that they might have missed.Additionally, according to Microsoft, this encourages inclusivity for users who have varied levels of language competence or hearing impairments.To make the feature available, administrators must activate the Allow Transcription policy.
