If you want to enable Live Caption on the Google Chrome browser, here is how you can do that. Google recently rolled out this functionality to help you get subtitles of a YouTube video or any other audio. As of now, you can get the Live Caption feature only in English, and you must have the latest version of this browser.
Undoubtedly, Google Chrome is the most popular and feature-rich browser you can use on your Windows 10 computer. Like any other standard web browser, it is possible to play video or audio on a webpage.
However, let’s assume that you want to watch a video, but you cannot understand the English language when someone speaks fast. Many times, it happens when someone watches a Netflix show or YouTube video. Even if that is not the case, you can simply turn on Live Caption on Google Chrome and find the subtitle even though it doesn’t have any.
As said earlier, this functionality is available only in English, and you can find it from any region. As it doesn’t work automatically, you have to enable it on your own. Before getting started with the steps, it is recommended to update the browser to the latest version. For that, you can open the browser > type chrome://settings/help in the address bar, press the Enter button and check if any update is available. If yes, install it.
