Live Caption (English) Coming to Teams soon

**Updated with proper commands"
Microsoft is releasing a new feature in Teams called "Live captioning". This enables the end-user to turn on speech to text for their meetings. The message was recently distributed in the O365 Admin portal and is mentioned as roadmap feature 52817,

If you are a user, you need to know this isn't automatically turned on, but yout have to select it from the "call bar".

If you are an admin, you might want to know you can control this feature on a global or per policy basis by the guidelines in the following article at docs.

Through powershell, you can do the following (Teams meetings policies are managed with the SkypeOnlinePowershellModule):
- If you want to disable the option of live captions for Teams meeting attendees, run this command in PowerShell:
Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -Identity "global" -LiveCaptionsEnabledType "Disabled"
- If you want to re-enable the option of live captions for Teams meeting attendees, run this command in PowerShell:
Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -Identity "global" -LiveCaptionsEnabledType "EnabledUserOverride"
- Where PolicyName is any custom policy you may have created. Global would refer to tenant-wide global policy.
