Add live captions in Streamlabs OBS (SLOBS)

Unlike OBS Studio, which supports closed captioning with Web Captioner, Streamlabs OBS only supports open captions, or captions that are always visible on your stream and can't be hidden by the viewer. Web Captioner is able to do this through the OBS WebSocket plugin, which is not available for Streamlabs OBS.

To set up open captioning with Streamlabs OBS, follow the steps for setting up screen capture in OBS Studio. The process is similar in both Streamlabs OBS and OBS Studio.
