more and more web conferencing tools have auto captions or subtitles, and youtube does it as well.

are there any plans do add this functionality to Kodi?

Would be extremely useful for content that might not include native captions.
I would think those services use beefy backend servers to provide that so it is unlikely to be something we can practically do.
even on a modern PC platform with decent CPU it wouldn't work?

I understand that some SBC like raspberry or odriod wouldn't work

I think you're still massively underestimating the requirements for creating correct, on-the-fly captions on the dot.
Spelling, grammar, interpreting sayings & jokes, and whatnot when it comes to technical, medical or other difficult mumbo-jumbo.
