How do I turn on or off closed captions? Live Captions is a new accessibility feature in Windows 11 which can provide automatic transcription for a movie or audio. This is really useful for people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. In this tutorial we’ll show you 2 simple methods to enable or disable Live Captions in Windows 11.

Method 1: Enable or Disable Live Captions via Settings App

  1. Press the Windows key + I to launch the Settings app. Choose Accessibility on the left side, and then click Captions on the right pane.

  2. You will see the toggle switch for Live captions. When turning on Live Captions the first time, it will prompt you to download the live captions language files (about 98.3Mb).

  3. If you want to change the style of the captions, click the “Caption style” drop-down list and you can select “White on black”, “Yellow on blue”, “Small caps” or “Large text”.

  4. When Live Captions is turned on, it will automatically convert video/audio being played on your computer into easily readable text.

Method 2: Enable or Disable Live Captions via Action Center

  1. Press Windows key + A on your keyboard (or tap the WiFi or Volume buttons in the system tray) to open the Action Center pane. Next, click the Accessibility icon.

  2. In the next pane, you can click the toggle next to Live captions to enable or disable the Live captions feature.

That’s it!
