Text on Tap for Microsoft Teams
Text on Tap is the streaming platform of Text on Top
. A captioner produces the text of your online meeting or conference in real-time
, typically on some special amazingly fast keyboard. As you know, you can read along using this Text on Tap website (see this live example
), but it is also possible to provide the text as Closed Captions
in a Teams Meeting
The so-called CART link
provided by Teams, allows the Text on Tap server to inject text into the Teams Meeting. This is very useful since the participant of the meeting does not need to do anything, except switching on the Closed Captions
To be honest, the implementation in Teams is rather poor. It is not real-time verbatim and the appearance (font size, color) cannot be changed. Despite the limitations of Teams, Text on Tap tries to deliver the captions with minimal delay!
Alternatively, use the Text on Tap Overlay tool
to get the best experience.
