Live Captioning Now Available in Zoom

Posted On December 18, 2020— Written By

The web conferencing tool Zoom now has a new built-in automated live captioning feature to help make your online meeting more accessible.

The live captioning feature is available in all NC State University Zoom accounts and must be activated by a meeting host. EIT recommends that the host turns on this feature for each meeting. Meeting attendees are able to view, hide, or modify captions. For instructions, see Zoom Accessibility.

You will need to do this for every meeting you are the host of that you want to turn the live transcript feature on for.

  • Select Live Transcript
  • Then select Enable Auto-Transcription
