Some features, including live captions, are reliant on our service providers rather than our direct team. As we continue to work with our service providers for more accessibility options, here’s two temporary fixes for getting closed captions on Behance livestreams.
Within Chrome's accessibility option, the browser natively supports closed captioning for all video and audio played through the program. Activate it for livestreams by following the process below.
Step One: Navigate to the Settings page in Chrome
Click the three dots in the top right corner of any chrome window. Then select "Settings."
Step Two: Navigate to the Accessibility Page
Within the settings menu, navigate to the left hand menu. At the bottom of the menu there is a dropdown menu called "Advanced." Expand the section to reveal the "Accessibility" option. Click it.
Step Three: Toggle on the "Live Caption" function
The first option under "Accessibility" will be for "Live Caption." Turn this on. Now Chrome will add a closed captioning system for any livestream you watch!
Adding closed captions to your livestream is as simple as adding a window source to your OBS setup. There are free web captioning services you can find and use to make your livestreams accessible.
