Share on

In order to make our online meetings more accessible for all participants, Zoom has added closed captioning. Below are the steps to turn on Closed Captioning and to enable live transcription for your meetings.

  • Log into Zoom (https://tennessee.zoom.us)
  • Click on Settings in left sidebar
  • Click on Meetings (Advanced)
  • Enable Closed Captioning by clicking on the toggle and then check the checkbox to enable live transcription

You’re all set!

When you’re hosting a meeting, you will need to look for the Live Transcript button at the bottom of your screen and then click on Enable Auto-Transcription to enable live transcripts. This must be done for every meeting.
