How To Turn Off Live Caption On Android

Android Apps

Hey there! If you’re like me, you might have found the live caption feature on Android to be a bit distracting at times. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic accessibility feature, but there are moments when I need to turn it off temporarily. Let me walk you through the steps on how to do just that.

Turning Off Live Caption on Android

First, unlock your Android device and open the Settings app. Once you’re in the Settings, scroll down and look for the Accessibility option. Tap on it to open the accessibility settings.

Next, within the Accessibility settings, scroll down until you find Hearing and tap on it. Under the Hearing section, you’ll see the Live Caption option. Tap on Live Caption to access its settings.

In the Live Caption settings, you’ll find a toggle switch at the top of the screen. Simply tap the toggle switch to turn off Live Caption. Once it’s turned off, the captions will no longer appear on your screen.

It’s important to note that turning off Live Caption here only disables it temporarily. If you want to completely turn off Live Caption, you can do so by tapping on the Settings gear icon next to the toggle switch. This will take you to the full Live Caption settings where you can disable it completely.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully turned off Live Caption on your Android device. Now you can enjoy your content without the distraction of live captions.

My Take on Live Caption

As much as I appreciate the live caption feature, there are times when I prefer to disable it, especially when I’m watching videos or participating in video calls. It’s great to have the option to toggle it on and off based on my needs.


Live Caption is a valuable accessibility feature on Android, but knowing how to turn it off when needed can make the user experience even better. I hope this guide has been helpful for you. Until next time, happy captioning!
