Using Zooms Automated Captions
Automated Captions are now available for all Rutgers Zoom accounts. Once activated by the host, all users will have the opportunity to benefit from this feature.
Activating Automated Captions
To activate the automated captions for users, the host will need to start closed captioning. To do so:
- After launching your meeting, click on the Live Transcript button, located at the bottom of the zoom window (next to Record).
- A menu will appear, click on Enable Auto-Transcription
Automated Captions will now appear for all users. Participants may opt to hide them, or view them as a transcript from the same Live Transcript menu.
Toggling captions on and off
Once you have activated captions, the host can hide them for themselves by clicking the upward arrow need to the 'CC Live Transcript' button.
Participants can click on the 'CC Live transcription' button to toggle captions on and off.
