Present with live captions in Google Slides

November 8, 2018

You can now show automated real-time captions when you present in Google Slides. This feature uses your computer's microphone to detect your spoken presentation, and then transcribes what you say as captions on the slides you're presenting. This helps improve accessibility and in environments where it's hard to hear. This feature can help make your presentation more effective for:

  • Audience members who are deaf or hard of hearing
  • Non-native speakers and/or audiences who prefer written content
  • In venues with poor audio or in noisy ambient environments 

To find out how to turn on and use automated captions in Slides, visit the Help Center.
