Google Chrome now offers Live Caption for media. You will see auto-generated caption when you play audio or video using Chrome. This article explains how to turn off or disable Live Caption on Chrome.
Disable Live Caption On Chrome
The easiest way to disable live caption on Chrome is to click the toggle from the media control menu. Allow me to explain.
The global media control menu on Chrome now has a live caption toggle. To disable the live caption, all I had to do was click the toggle.
In my case, the live caption was enabled by default. It may not be the final setting when Google launches this feature on the Stable channel. However, if you find live caption enabled on Google Chrome and want a way to quickly disable it, you now know where to look.
To disable live caption from Chrome settings:
- Open Chrome Settings or go to chrome://settings
- Click Advanced > Accessibility
- Clcick the Live Caption toggle to off position.

What is Live Caption?
Live caption is a Google feature that transcribes audio in real-time. You can even mute a video or audio and still see the transcript on the screen.
Live caption was first featured on Android 10. It later made its way into Google Chrome. Here is a short video from Google explaining what live caption can do.
