I learned from my friend Daniel Jacobs, the UT Austin captioning manager, that live auto-transcription or captioning is now available in version 5.5.2 of Zoom. Watch this video to learn how to turn auto-transcribing or captioning on in your UT Austin Zoom account. If you prefer a quick written tutorial, check out Daniel’s instructions here.
To upgrade to the latest version of Zoom, follow these instructions:
Also, make sure that you have your settings in Zoom set to enable live transcription to show transcript on the side panel in meeting. See a quick demo here.
Please note: Although ASR transcripts are available, they should not be considered an equal/appropriate replacement for live-generated captions as an accommodation for deaf and hard-of-hearing (D/HH) individuals. Please contact Services for Students with Disabilities for more information if accommodations are required (Jacobs, 2021).
