Sometimes it is the small things that have a great impact. Live Caption forcan only be one of these features. I got the chance to demo it on Google I / O 2019 on Tuesday, and while it is currently unavailable on just then (we tried) I thought I'd share how to use it when you get a chance.
Live Caption takes on the flight transcription of the sound in any video: Podcasts. CNET videos. The shaking hand comb your sister took off her children. Live Caption is not limited to a YouTube video or Google Duo call.
Imagine you're in a crowded or loud place and you can't hear what's happening in the video. Or the sound of the clip ($ 189 at Walmart) is distorted. Or maybe you or someone you love is hearing impaired, the person who speaks has speech patterns that you can't quite do, or you want to keep the volume extremely low so you don't disturb the people around you. Live Caption can borrow one hand.
To be completely transparent, the demo I saw was a pre-recorded video, so we have to see that the function goes live before we know how fast transcription happens. But after the lightning transcription we saw withGoogle has surely shown that it has the technology to pull it off.
Live Caption uses machine learning on a device, a similar technology As smart answers, the small suggestions you see under your composition window when sending an email.
All transcription happens on your phone and Google does not save or otherwise access the transcripts. Live Caption will be available for Android Q later this year.
