Live presentations can be thought-provoking, inspirational, and powerful. A great presentation can inspire us to think about something in an entirely different way or bring a group together around a common idea or project. But not everyone experiences presentations in the same way. We may speak a different language from the presenter, or be a native speaker in another language, and some of us are deaf and hard of hearing. So, what if speakers could make their presentations better understood by everyone in the room? Now they can with live captions & subtitles in PowerPoint.
In honor of the U.N. International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Microsoft announced this new feature—powered by artificial intelligence (AI)—which provides captions and subtitles for presentations in real-time.
