Get the most out of your captions

  • To make sure your live captions are as accurate as possible, try to follow these best practices:
  • Speak clearly, slowly, and directly into the mic.
  • As your distance from the mic increases, captions may become less accurate.
  • Avoid locations with background noise.
  • Avoid having multiple people speak at the same time.

Please note live environments use machine-generated captions, the accuracy of these varies depending on the audio quality, topic and speaker and therefore are unlikely to be 100% accurate.
