Viewing Closed Captioning or Live Transcription on Zoom

Thanks for Victoria University for sharing this valuable information.

Zoom has introduced a closed captions and live transcripts feature to their platform and it has some of the best accuracy we have seen from computer generated captions. It is well worth trying if you are accessing tutorials etc via Zoom.

Our captioning pilot last year showed that captions seem to help the concentration, focus and understanding of almost everyone but are particularly useful for those with mental illness, specific learning disabilities and hearing impairments.

It is a computer-generated service and therefore may not be completely accurate in all situations, particularly with te Reo Māori or other languages, but generally, we are impressed with the great accuracy rate.
