google-chrome & chromium live caption never working

I use Linux & Windows to watch some video website, both turned on Live Caption.
But Google Chrome on Windows works, while google-chrome (from aur) & chromium (from package) never show the caption.
Could anyone please solve the problem? It's a very useful feature.

All speech video, I've never seen any caption on chrome under Linux
For example,
https://www.bloomberg.com/live

It works on chrome under Windows.

I use xfce4, xorg

I'm having the same problem using Chrome on Arch.
I tried a few different distros and noticed that Chrome live caption works on Debian and Ubuntu with Gnome but also not work on Fedora with Gnome.

I've figure out a weird way to solve this problem:
I installed a debian 10 + gnome + google chrome in a linux container, and  the live caption works... But I still think it should works in a native archlinux environment.
