Skype Video Calls Get Live Captions And Subtitles Thanks To Artificial Intelligence

Skype will also be getting support for translation of 20 languages in the coming weeks. But those who are deaf or hard of hearing are at a disadvantage in those situations.

In celebration of this year's United Nations' International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Skype has launched call captioning with live captions and subtitles.

Nigel Farage quits Ukip over party's 'extremism' direction
Mr Farage has said the appointment of Robinson to Ukip signals the party has become a "party of street activism". UKIP subsequently said the NEC had voted "overwhelmingly" against a motion of no confidence.

"Simple settings allow you to turn them on for a single call or keep them turned on for all your calls". This does not remove the fact that the features will also come in handy for other users within the Skype community. The subtitles feature is part of Microsoft's AI work through which the company has been providing captions and translations to audiences. The text will appear on screen either in the speaker's native language or in a different language via translation.

Microsoft announced that it will be adding real-time captions and subtitles to PowerPoint early in 2019.

The last thing they need is for Markelle Fultz to come back and bring all the drama and dysfunction with him. Sixers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely following a diagnoses of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

The live captions and subtitles will be "fast, continuous, and contextually updated as people speak", said the software giant. To use the feature, users need to have the latest version of Skype, Skype version 8, and will then need to navigate to the setting panels to turn on the new calling feature. These features are not only created to warm the video-calling app back into the hearts of users, they will also add values to Skype in the face of stiff competition from the likes of WhatsApp and Messenger. The captions and subtitles will be accessible for Office 365 subscribers using PowerPoint on Windows 10, PowerPoint for Mac, and PowerPoint Online. With Microsoft continuing to develop the platform though it's clear they want Skype to stay around for much longer - so expect to see many more feature updates coming in the near future.
