This feature is currently showing up for select users but it looks like they can't post Stories with it just yet. Instagram also confirmed to Navarra this feature is not available for public testing so it could be due to a glitch that it's appearing for some users. This feature would be helpful for users with hearing disabilities.

Instagram introduced something similar last year with its camera-first Threads app. Here, the app automatically adds captions to every video recorded. You can then remove the captions, or edit each word. You can also move the captions around the video and place them where you want. On Threads, transcriptions work for 15 seconds. This feature isn't available to all Threads users but there have been quite a lot who have posted the captioned videos as Instagram Stories and on TikTok as well.
