Flo's in-browser virtual meeting rooms allow you to take advantage of Chrome's built-in accessibility features. This article explains how to enable this Google Chrome feature to add live captioning to your Flo calls.

Use Live Caption in Chrome

You can turn on Live Caption for media you play in Chrome.

Live Caption is only available in English.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.

  2. At the top right, click More and then Settings.

  3. Near the bottom of the Settings page, click Accessibility.

  4. Turn on Live Caption.


  • When you play a video, to turn on captions, at the top right click Media control.

  • To use live captions for videos that autoplay, turn on the video volume.

  • When you click away from the tab with sound, live captions will appear in a hover-bubble that you can drag. To return to the tab with audio, click.

Customize your captions

Customize your captions to make them easier to read. You can:

  • Collapse and expand captions with the arrow on the caption box.

  • Select the captions to move them to your preferred place on your browser.

  • Change your caption font, size, color, and opacity.

  • Change the background color and opacity.

To customize the font:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.

  2. At the top right, click More Settings.

  3. At the bottom of the Settings page, click Advanced Accessibility Captions.

  4. In your computer's system preferences, select your customization.

Once you have turned on Live Captions in Chrome and made your settings preferences you will be all set to see captions while using Flo. When you have entered your virtual meeting and the other party starts talking the box will pop up and start captioning automatically for you.

This is what Chrome Live Caption in Flo will look like (there could be some variance depending on your preference settings):
