Clubhouse is adding English live closed captioning on iOS and may soon bring support for 12 more languages.
Clubhouse has announced that it is making live captions available on its audio sessions, beginning with English and iOS for the time being. Support for 12 more languages is currently being tested as well.
The move to add a live transcript of audio conversations will effectively make Clubhouse chats more accessible to anyone and add more convenient for users to follow the discussion better (at least to those who prefer reading while listening) and to continue to “listen in” – even in circumstances that require “sound-off.”
closed captioning is here for iOS! update your app now to see it in action in live rooms.

Live captions have already been available on Twitter Spaces for some time.
Clubhouse also recently announced the addition of an additional 13 languages, a move strongly swayed by its growing popularity in India, as five of the newly added languages are from the Indian subcontinent.
It also recently launched a new “Replays” feature that allows listeners to access audio content after it goes live.
