Live captions on chrome don't work on fedora

Chrome has a nice accessibility feature call Live Captions. Similar to CC option in Youtube. You can enable this in settings > Advance > accessibility > Live Captions.

I am deaf so i use this a lot - especially with videos on teachable that don’t include this feature. Unfortunately the Chrome live captions don’t work when using Fedora.

I’ve tried searching google but only found something in this regard with Pop OS but I don’t think the issue is relevant on Fedora 34.

Anyone come across this or have some ideas of what cloud be blocking this chrome feature on fedrora?

Fedora 34
Chrome Version 95.0.4638.69


Hi, I’m also using Version 95.0.4638.69 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I managed to get it working by chrome://flags and changing “Live caption to Enabled” and “SODA Live Caption to Disabled”. I think I found it in Reddit also for Pop_OS!. Most of the time, issues like these are common across all Linux Desktops. So following those steps also helps unless it’s a system app, require terminal or drivers.


Definitely NO “SODA Live Caption” on the config , you are TOTALLY wrong.
Also problems esp on chromium-freeworld are caused because the SELinux does not allow access to
