System-Wide Live Captions on Windows 11

New accessibility features, including system-wide live captions, are in the update to Windows 11, version 22H2, coming to Windows 11 users in the next few months.

This valuable feature is not only perfect for users with hearing difficulties but also can be used to generate subtitles in unsupported applications. Live Captions can be used to transcript audio files and translate inaudible sound. Individuals can customise visual settings on the captions to alter their text size, font, colour and background.

Live Captions process your voice data and other audio files locally, meaning your data is not shared with Microsoft servers and does not leave your device. You can read more about the System-wide Live Captions in Microsoft’s privacy statement here:

Windows 11 has taken Accessibility to the next level enabling users to interact with their PC using a pen, voice and even with their eyes! Yes, a user will be able to control anything on the screen with a variety of eye-tracking enabled cameras and a simple-to-use launch pad (eye-tracking hardware sold separately).
