Free live captions for any sound source!

Typebot® is free-to-use software that provides automatic overlaid captions for any sound source on your computer and displays them wherever you want on your screen in real time.

Download for Windows [BETA]

Due to OS limitations, captioning desktop audio currently requires the use of a virtual audio cable. A virtual audio cable from VB Audio comes bundled with the Typebot installer.
