Allow automatic subtitles to be trained for speech patterns or commonly occurring words or names
Can a feature be added to train the subtitles in Powerpoint to recognize my speech patterns or words that I use frequently?
As a teacher, I am often calling on students in class, and as a math teacher, I'm often using very specific vocabulary that I would like to appear correctly for students who rely on subtitles. The value of the subtitles and their usability is greatly reduced when a student's name or course vocabulary are misrepresented on screen.
Hi Mike, we will pass your feedback on to the engineering team. In the meantime you can turn on Live Captions and Subtitles which you can use anytime during a presentation. After starting the presentation you can select Toggle Subtitles on the Toolbar that appears below the main slide. Then you can also select Slide Show > Always Use Subtitles to turn this feature on for all presentations. Those subtitles are also powered by Microsoft Speech Services, and your vocabulary and student names will be sent to Microsoft and help to improve this service. We're also going to attach this article here for more information on this feature (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/present-with-real-time-automatic-captions-or-subtitles-in-powerpoint-68d20e49-aec3-456a-939d-34a79e8ddd5f). Please let us know if additional clarification or assistance is needed.
