Skype is celebrating the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities and updated its app by adding captions and subtitles.
Skype announced its new feature that will help users especially the disabled people such as deaf or hard of hearing to understand when they are in voice or video call with their friends. The live captions and subtitles will run on the latest version of the app for one-on-one calls with a friend or to any phone number. It will also work in a group call. The new feature will give the best experience for everyone in the Skype community.
Users will need to select Settings, then the Calling option, and tap the Call Subtitles selection. The Call Subtitles selection has a toggle button to enable the subtitles for all voice and video calls.
The new feature runs with Skype version 8 which is available on Android 6.0 and above, Android tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows, and Skype version 14 for Windows 10.
The company confirmed that they will add over 20 languages in the coming weeks.
