Microsoft on Wednesday introduced Hindi captions and transcripts for its video collaboration app Teams on Web that will help small and medium businesses (SMBs) in India.
Microsoft Teams on Web now allows live Hindi captions, along with other new spoken languages, including German, Portuguese (Brazil), Japanese, to name a few.
"This provides flexibility and additional clarity for your participants to engage in meetings. Small businesses in India need the right technology tools to adapt to customers' needs and scale operations," the company said in a statement.
Live transcription allows users to follow and review conversations alongside the meeting video or audio in real time.

One can also view captions coming from a CART provider (real-time captioning) within the Microsoft Teams meeting window instead of a secondary window.
Last month, Microsoft rolled out three new features on Teams to help SMBs.
The new features are 'Schedule Meetings on Mobile,' 'Chat with Anyone' and 'Google Calendar Integration'.
