Replying to this hoping for more visibility for the Brave developers. I’m profoundly deaf and recently migrated to Brave from Chrome without realising that I’d lose the live captioning, it’s very useful for me on sites like Twitter, Instagram and many more sites that doesn’t offer live captioning or transcription natively.
I wish to support close caption in Brave as in Chrome. It would be nice to operate regardless to which website or video playback it operates on and easy to turn on or off in case certain website do have CC feature. It would be very nice to work on conference call as well. I’m also HoH (cochlear implant surgery next week)
I gave up Brave since they not really interested putting closed caption feature. They made a nasty snub when I asked if they’re making progress. I went back to previous browser. Good luck getting this feature if they really bothered.
If adding the experimental features from brave://flags does not work. You can try going to the an online subtitle website and looking up your program of choice and then download your subtitle/closed cation file (.srt). Next, you can add a web browser extension to view and apply your subtitle/closed cation file to your online videos. Best of great fortunes to everyone!
