How to turn off live transcript/subtitles/captions showing when presenter mode in PPT?

The transcript/subtitles/captions are only showing when a certain participant shares her screen and is in presenter mode in Powerpoint. It picks up only what she says, live. Only in slide presenter mode. Said it happens in Teams calls too.

For some reason, we didn't have a closed captioning (CC) button as participants or as host. Zoom versions were up-to-date, too.

I did find the solution though: this specific participant had subtitles enabled in Microsoft PowerPoint. Once she unchecked that box in PowerPoint, they went away! This explains why there were showing automatically in both Teams and Zoom.

Hello,
My name is Brandon. Thanks for joining the Zoom Community! This setting is in each participants personal view, meaning each individual can either turn on or turn off (enable/disable) the captioning. Please see this support article to reference this function.
