If you have a Zoom meeting, you’ll want to know how to enable the audio transcript feature and assign a “closed captioner.” This article will provide the steps to enable the audio transcript feature in Zoom and help you create a transcript. You’ll need to register with the Zoom community if you’d like to enable this feature for your Zoom meeting.
How to enable the audio transcript feature in a Zoom meeting
How do I enable the audio transcript feature in Zoom? Enabling the audio transcript feature in a Zoom meeting will allow you to save and search audio files from your meetings. You must first enable Closed Captions to use the feature. Zoom also provides a feature for searching all recordings in the cloud. To enable the audio transcript feature in a Zoom meeting, you must first enable it on the account settings page.
Once you’ve enabled the feature, you can customize the transcript view. For example, you can hide or highlight subtitles and change the font size of the transcript. This feature is also available to attendees of your meeting, who can view the transcript and adjust it according to their needs. Lastly, the transcript can be downloaded by anyone in the meeting. Make sure to download it before the meeting so you can use it later. This feature makes it easier to understand the contents of your meetings. In addition, it saves you from spending hours reading transcripts while allowing you to review them immediately after the meeting.
How to create an audio transcript
When you host a Zoom meeting, you can enable and deactivate Live Transcription and allow the participants to save and edit the transcript. The transcript can also be searchable. To start creating the transcript, click the “Subtitle Settings” link on the toolbar. You will then be able to select a tab for your meeting and choose how to view it. If you are not a Zoom host, you must enable Closed Captions to do this.
You can also choose to make the transcript available for download. The transcript will be provided in mp4 and vtt file formats. Once you have opened the transcript, you can edit the text and save the changes. In addition, you can search for keywords and highlight certain phrases to jump to specific parts of the video. To download the transcript, click “View Full Transcript.”
In Zoom, you can choose to use closed captioning or open captioning. When you enable the latter, you can choose between open and closed captioning. Open captioning is not as easy to enable, but you can still use it for transcription. It’s recommended to use a third-party service that uses robust encryption algorithms. However, you should always check the privacy policies of these services before making your decision.
How to assign a designated “closed captioner”
If you’re hosting a Zoom meeting, you may want to assign a designated “closed caption” to the room. The host can do this or designate a co-host or panelist to type the captions. The captioner will need to know who is speaking during the meeting and note any non-verbal information. If the meeting ends abruptly, the captioner will not be able to save the transcript.
You can enable closed captioning in Zoom meetings by selecting the option on the Managing and viewing the closed captioning page. You may see a verification dialog when you enable this feature. Click “Continue” to confirm. You can also opt to use AI-powered live transcription, automatically transcribing the audio from the meeting. You can view the transcript in the Zoom Room or export the transcript to a video site like YouTube.
To use closed captioning in a Zoom meeting, you can designate a designated “closed captioner” or hire a third-party service. In addition, zoom’s AI-powered live transcription allows hosts to enable captioning during meetings using the desktop app. Once closed captions are added, participants will be able to read them, ensuring that everyone can hear and participate.
