At the moment Crowdcast doesn't have Native closed captioning built-in, but we are working on it. We know how important it is for greater accessibility and are busy making some big upgrades, although we don't have a timeline we can share as of now. But good news! Live Captions are now available for Google Chrome users.

When enabled, Live Captions automatically appear in a small, moveable box at the bottom of your browser when you’re watching or listening to a piece of content where people are talking.

Words appear after a slight delay and captions will even appear with muted audio or your volume turned down. Live

Captions can be enabled in the latest version of Chrome by going to Settings, then the “Advanced” section, and then “Accessibility.”

(If you’re not seeing the feature, try manually updating and restarting your browser.) When you toggle them on, Chrome will quickly download some speech recognition files, and then captions should appear the next time your browser plays audio where people are talking.

Please note, this set up is on the viewer's end; the captions are not displayed within the video feed directly. You can read more about this, including a video explainer, directly from Google.

Captions are just for the viewer who enables them and captions are not displayed within the video feed directly.
