Interested in learning how to turn off the automatic generation of closed captions for your Facebook Live videos?
While captions are intended to assist viewers in viewing your videos with the sound turned off, the auto-generated captions may sometimes create issues, particularly if you are broadcasting in a different language than the one being used.
Using the instructions in this post, you will be able to deactivate Facebook’s auto-captions.
Facebook introduced closed captioning on all Facebook Live videos in April 2020. Whenever a viewer mutes a video, closed captions will show. When someone unmutes a video, the closed captions will vanish from your Facebook Live. Essentially, the viewer, not the broadcaster, controls subtitles on their films and may switch them on or off.
Closed captions can aid with understanding of speech that might be hard to grasp. For example, if someone talks really rapidly, has an accent, mumbles, or the video contains background noise. Captions also assist viewers watch your films while they are in a sound-sensitive area, such as an office, library, or family.
Facebook does not allow you to turn off closed captioning on your Live videos within your StreamYard dashboard. To disable auto-captions on your Facebook Live, follow the steps mentioned below.
When you uncheck the box for auto-generated captions, the subtitles for your Facebook Live videos that are shared to your Page will be turned off.
Now that you’ve learned how to turn off Facebook auto-captions for your Facebook Live videos, keep in mind that you can always put them back in manually or turn them back on again at any time.
