Microsoft added several useful features in Teams in the last couple of months, and it is hard at work to bring more in the future too. The Redmond giant is set out to bring some accessibility features for people with hearing loss to help them in Teams meetings.
Microsoft intends to add Sign Language View and always-on captions in Teams meetings in the next month.
As per the description given on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap page, Microsoft Teams will "prioritize up to two other participants' videos for sign language in meetings." These videos will be visible even when the content is shared.
