How to turn on Closed Captioning within your Zoom account so that there is a LIVE transcript feed to all participants.
We request that anyone reading this message make a point to turn them on in their own organization but also, let’s work together for others and request that the hosts of meetings we attend turn on captioning or provide them with the instructions link to do so going forward. It is all of our responsibility to make our work and our world as accessible as possible to everyone. Thank you in advance for your attention and efforts on this.
While the Live captioning is not perfect, it is as great if not better than TV captioning or iphone text dictation (waaaay better than that!) and so I would include a quick disclaimer to people reminding them that they are not perfect BUT also direct people to the FULL transcript button which opens the transcript up into the sidebar AND allows them to save the full transcript which is great for content and a game-changer for anyone taking minutes.
It is pretty straightforward and any host can enable it in your paid account. Here is a link: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/207279736-Closed-captioning-and-live-transcription#h_4e6f4864-4f7e-441a-96a0-2f826cb79c7e
