Instructions for Live Captioning
Only meeting Hosts can enable this feature for the room.
1. As a host, use the Live Transcript button, to Enable Auto-Transcription.
- If you do not see a Live Transcript button, check the More menu to access the Live Transcript option.
2. Once turned on, it will start showing subtitle format live transcription for all participants. Each individual participant (including the host) in the meeting can hide the transcription view for themselves without affecting other participants.
3. Also, after live transcription is enabled by the meeting host, each individual participant (including the host) can also enable the full transcript view for themselves, which will move the meeting transcription to a side window (similar to a chat or participant list side-view).
Only the host of the meeting can turn the live captioning back off/disable it for the whole meeting if they choose.
