Community - I addressed a lot of questions about Captions/Transcription/Translation.  

🤦🏻‍ Soooo I thought I had it figured out - but was missing one key bit.  


Without Real-Time Translation License the Captions (in the overlay bar on video wall) will match the Spoken Language selected by the Host.  English/French/German/Spanish will be shown to HOST as an option.  If a participant turns on the CC icon - the Captioning language will automatically match the Spoken Language selected by the Host. (E/F/G/S).  That Spoken Language becomes the WXA created transcript when the Mtg or Webinar is recorded. 


With Real-Time Translation License  E/F/G/S are provided as choices, but the # of available Spoken Languages bump to 13.  This still must be selected by the Host.  If participant turns on the CC icon, they will see drop menu to change the language from the Spoken into 100+ translated languages.  In this case, the Captioning/Highlights panel follows the Spoken Language selected and becomes the Transcript but the Caption bar will look different as it is translated text.  (Max 5 unique languages in session).


So! The good news is that without the RTT license - there are 4 Spoken and Captioning languages available as of 42.5 (English, French, German and Spanish).   Apologies for the confusion I caused trying to avoid the confusion! 

Apologies for any confusion my attempt at clarifying caused!!! 

Hi @Mary_Gonzales, very helpfull. This was always confusing! Thank you!

Use Webex :)

Thank you!  I really thought I was explaining it correctly, then in talking with the Product Manager, we understood where we had crossed each other in our conversation.   Whew! The good news is with 42.5 Customers will have the benefit of 4 Spoken Languages without the need to purchase the RTT license.  The RTT license will provide added languages 13 total Spoken and 100+ total Translated.
