Zoom: Automatic Live Transcription
Description of the video:
Zoom at IU now features automatic live transcription, which can help improve accessibility in Zoom meetings.
Keep in mind that if you’ve received an accommodation request, the live transcription service in Zoom is not enough to ensure accessibility in a meeting – for accommodation support, contact the Assistive Technology and Accessibility Center.
Enabling automatic live transcription
The meeting’s host will need to turn on automatic live transcripts in order for everyone to have the option to view them.
- To enable the live transcription feature, in the menu bar at the bottom of the Zoom window, click on Live Transcript. This option is also available under the More option in the Zoom menu when sharing your screen.
- In the dialog box that appears, under the Live Transcript heading at the bottom of the dialog box, click the Enable Auto Transcription button to turn on live transcription.
The live transcript subtitles will now display at the bottom of the screen for all participants.
Hiding the subtitles
All meeting participants, including the meeting host, have the ability to hide the subtitles generated by the live transcript tool on their individual device. This does not affect the visibility of subtitles on other participants’ devices.
- To hide subtitles, in the Zoom menu bar, click the arrow to the right of Live Transcript. In the menu that appears, click Hide Subtitle.
The subtitles will no longer be displayed on your screen. To turn them back on, click the arrow to the right of Live Transcript in the Zoom menu, then click on Show Subtitle.
