When you record a meeting in Microsoft Teams it will be saved to Microsoft Stream. If you have the right plan Stream will analyze that recording and show speaker timeline with face detection, create a transcript and add closed captions. These features will now be added to more plans like E1, F1 and A1.
The following Stream features will be automatically applied to new videos in your tenant:
- Speaker timelines that use face detection to indicate every place that a person appears within a video so viewers can easily navigate to each speaker in the video
- Speech-to-text and closed captions that capture spoken dialog in a readable form and make content more accessible for everyone
- Transcript search and timecodes that let viewers quickly search and find moments that matter in a video
- Speech-to-text transcription that enables closed captions and deep search will be applied to existing videos in Stream.

When will speach-to-text and close captions be available in more language – ex Norwegian?
I guess we have to wait a couple of years for that. Microsoft is quick with scandinavian languages for GUI and other static information but when it comes to more advanced stuff I guess Norwgian (and other scandinavian languages) is a to small marked to prioritize.
