How to enable live auto captioning in zoom/ | PSTCC
Now, both Microsoft Teams and Zoom have auto-captioning capability in English for live meetings. This may be helpful to some students, but it should not be relied on for accuracy.
Zoom now has automatic Live Transcription (closed captioning) available in English. Once enabled, this automatically adds text to the bottom of the video with what the host and others are saying. You are required to enable the “Closed Captioning” and “Enable live transcription service to show transcript on the side panel in-meeting” settings within “Settings” on the Zoom website. This article will review how to enable the automatic live transcription (closed captioning) settings and how to leverage them within a meeting.
There are three parts to using Live Transcription/Closed Captioning:
- Host – Enable the “Closed Captioning” and “Enable live transcription service to show transcript on the side panel in-meeting” accounts settings prior to starting a meeting (only have to complete once).
- Host – Enable “Auto-Transcription” after you’ve started your meeting (must complete for each meeting you want to have live auto-transcription available).
- Participant – Click the “Live Transcript” button from the in-meeting Zoom toolbar and select one of the options from the pop-up menu (must complete for each meeting that has auto-transcription enabled).
