Speaker attribution in Live Captions

Teams already provides live captions as a way to follow along with what is being said in a meeting. We will soon add speaker attribution to captions so that everyone knows who is speaking.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65949.

When this will happen
We will begin a gradual rollout in mid-August and expect the rollout to be complete by the end of August.

How this will affect your organization

Live captions improved accessibility of Microsoft Teams. Identifying who is speaking when there are multiple speakers in a meeting makes live captions more useful and improves comprehension.

Speaker attribution

Note: Remarks made by participants joining from a conference room device will be attributed to the room rather than to an individual in the room.

What you need to do to prepare

Live captions with speaker attribution is available in new meeting and calling experiences.
