Google Chrome: browser soon with live subtitles

Not everyone can speak and listen, which is why Google has now integrated live captions into Android after a long time. Therefore, the operating system will display subtitles at any time if they are needed. We have known this for years from YouTube, where you can also show subtitles at any time and therefore read the content of a video.

It no longer matters what application is currently running and what content is playing. Live Caption creates captions at any time, which should be a little boon for deaf smartphone users. You won’t even need the Internet.

“With a single touch of a button, Live Caption automatically captures the media that plays audio on your phone. Live Caption works with videos, podcasts and audio messages in any application, even content that you have recorded yourself. As soon as speech is detected, captions are displayed without the need for WiFi or cell phone data, and there is no audio or captions on the phone. “

Google wants the innovation to be available this year, but did not elaborate. So it’s not entirely clear yet whether the new Android Q is a prerequisite for Live Caption.

Google has also announced a change to enable telephony for those who cannot hear or speak. It basically looks a bit like the call screen, so the smartphone speaks for you and transcribes the caller. Something pretty good that is being tested in the US at the moment.
