Zoom has the ability to auto-generate subtitles (captioning) in your online meetings or webinars. This feature will need to be activated by the meeting host for participants to enable. The following steps will guide you through how to activate the Live Transcript options if they have been enabled by the host.
How to View the Live Automatic Transcriptions During a Meeting or Webinar:
Note: Only the meeting host can turn auto transcriptions on or off.
Once Live Transcriptions are enabled by the host, a new set of options will be available for the host and attendees. By clicking the small arrow on the Live Transcript button, attendees will have the option to select how they wish to view the transcriptions and subtitles. This setting may also be listed under the More icon.
These are the settings available for the Live Transcription option.
Show or Hide Subtitle: The transcript will appear as video subtitles at the bottom of the video frame.
View Full Transcript: The transcript will appear in a side-panel Transcript window, and the full transcript (up to that point) may be saved by clicking Save Transcript. Host and attendees can also search the transcript by entering text into the Search transcript field at the top of the window.
- Subtitle Settings: Participants can change the appearance of the subtitles.
