What’s that you say? Present with captions in Google Slides

What’s that you say? Present with captions in Google Slides (Google)
To help your audience get more out of your presentation, you can now turn on automatic captions in Google Slides.
Yet another reason to use Google Slides.

Automated closed captions in Google Slides. The feature will gradually roll out to all Slides users starting this week.

The closed captions feature is available when presenting in Google Slides. It uses your computer’s microphone to detect your spoken presentation, then transcribes—in real time—what you say as captions on the slides you’re presenting.  When you begin presenting, click the “CC” button in the navigation box (or use the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + c in Chrome OS / Windows or ⌘ + Shift + c in Mac).

I often record screencasts of lectures with Slides and Screencast-o-matic. I don’t include closed captions…even though I should. This feature has been available on Screencast-o-matic Pro. I’ll need to identify which tool works the best…and start including closed captioning for viewers.

The ultimate result looks great.
