Zoom accounts through DePaul provide AI-powered live transcription and closed captions. Live transcription only supports English and speaking as clearly as possible is recommended.
Captions will need to be enabled within a meeting before participants can
turn them on or use the
live transcription feature.
Before captions can be available to participants, the host will need to enable captioning within the meeting.
Once the host enables close captions, participants will need to turn them on.
Note: By default, subtitles are white text with a black background. These colors, along with other settings, can be modified. Select
CC Live Transcript, then select
When a user turns on closed captions, the captions will populate for all users in the Zoom meeting. Participants who do not want closed captions will need to manually turn them off.
Along with closed captions, Zoom offers a live transcription option.
