> " Unfortunately, captions aren’t always available for every piece of
> content. Now with Live Caption on Chrome, you can automatically generate
> real-time captions for media with audio on your browser. It works across
> social and video sites, podcasts and radio content, personal video
> libraries (such as Google Photos), embedded video players, and most
> web-based video or audio chat services."
> ... To turn on Live Caption in Chrome from your desktop, go to Chrome
> Settings, click on the Advanced section, then go to the Accessibility
> section. The feature currently supports English and is available globally
> on the latest release of Chrome on Windows, Mac and Linux devices and will
> be coming soon to ChromeOS. For Android devices, Live Caption is already
> available <https://blog.google/products/android/live-caption/> for any
> audio or video on your mobile device."
