Enable Live Transcription for Zoom Meetings

Zoom now has an automated Live Transcription service that can be enabled during meetings to provide on-demand captioning.

This is incredibly helpful for users who may be unable to hear clearly or who may be in a loud environment. To use this feature, enable the setting in your CCC Zoom Account and then enable it during your zoom meetings.

    • – Go to https://cccedu.zoom.us and sign in with your CCC username and password
    • – Click on Settings
    • – Locate and enable the setting called Closed Captioning
    • – Then check the box to Enable live transcription service
