Live transcription is now available for UA Zoom accounts! Transcription can be enabled by the host, and any participants can view the captioning as needed. The robot transcription service enables speech to text transcription in Zoom meetings and webinars. Live transcription only supports English.
AI/automatic speech recommendation captions are not accurate enough to serve as an accommodation – for that, human/manual captioning is necessary – but this service can enhance accessibility for all users.
To enable live transcription, sign into the Zoom web portal, and visit Settings. Select the Meeting tab, scroll to the Advanced settings and select the checkbox to enable transcription. If any user finds that they are unable to access these settings, contact the UA System Zoom Support Team.
