When subtitles are turned on during calls or meetings, participants' voices will be automatically converted into text in real time. If the subtitle language selected by a participant doesn't match the language spoken by the current speaker, an automatic translation text will be generated in real time.

Q: What can be done to make subtitles more accurate?
A: Try one of three things:
- •Check if your subtitle language is correct.
- •Ask others to check if their spoken language is correct. For instance, if someone sets English as their spoken language and speaks in Chinese, the subtitles you see won't be as accurate.
- •Ask others to lean closer to their microphones when speaking or use earphones to improve the quality of their audio.
Q: Is there a translation?
A: Yes, Chinese-English translation is currently supported. For instance, if you select Chinese as your subtitle language, and the active speaker is speaking in English, their words will be automatically translated, and you'll see subtitles in Chinese.
Q: Is Japanese supported?
A: Not at the moment. We're working on providing this feature.
Q: Why aren't some participants on the list when I try to filter subtitles?
A: Only participants who spoke or shared content during the meeting will appear on the list.
Q: When do subtitles start being recorded?
A: Subtitles start being recorded when any participant turns them on.
Q: Can subtitles be recorded or live streamed?
A: Not at the moment. We're working on it.
Q: Why don't I see the subtitles feature?
A: Check to make sure that you're using V3.24 or later. If you still don't see it, it's possible that the feature isn't enabled. You can ask your administrator to enable the feature in the admin console under Video Meetings - Meeting Settings.
