You can now have live captions to all classes (both live and recorded) at Learn It Live with the Google Chrome browser!
Here are the steps (see full resource here):
- In Chrome, go to Settings > Advanced > Accessibility.
- Enable “Live Caption.” Chrome will download the necessary speech recognition files, which only takes a few seconds. You’ll see “Speech files downloaded” under Live Caption when the feature is ready.
- Live Captions should start transcribing automatically whenever the browser detects audio. If not, click the media icon to open Chrome’s playback controls (it’s the button in the upper-right between Chrome’s browser extensions toolbar and your Google Account profile icon). Make sure “Live Caption” is toggled on.
The Live Captions appear in a window near the bottom of the browser tab that is playing audio. You can adjust the size and appearance of the caption window under Settings > Advanced > Accessibility > Caption Preferences.
If you decide you don’t want Live Captions on at the moment, click the “X” to close the caption window and turn off for the current media, or toggle off the “Live Captions” option in Chrome’s media controls panel to disable them entirely.
