Google brings real-time closed captioning to Slides via ZDNet

Google on Monday will begin rolling out automated closed captioning to Google Slides for US English, a feature that will make presentations more accessible to audiences that are deaf or hard of hearing.

The feature uses the microphone on a presenter's computer to detect the spoken presentation and displays written captions on screen in real time. It works for a single user presenting in US English on a laptop or desktop computer, using the Chrome browser. Google plans to expand the feature to more countries and languages eventually.
