LinkedIn now offers automatic captions for your live streams.
A couple things to note:
- Currently, automatic captions only support English audio content.
- Captions are automatically added and your viewers can toggle them on or off. As the broadcaster, you can disable auto-captions on LinkedIn from appearing at anytime.
How to Disable Closed Captions on LinkedIn:
- On your LinkedIn Live video post, click Edit Video.
- Click to toggle the Video Captions "OFF." Then click "Done."
How to Toggle Closed Captions On/Off as a Viewer:
When your live video includes captions, your viewers can toggle them ON/OFF. To do so, click the "CC" button at the bottom right of the video player window.
