Re: Zoom has incorporated Captions #ZoomCaptions

A few days ago, I shared this new Zoom development with a moderator for the Mayo Clinic Connect group. Today, when mentors from a variety of discussion groups came together, the captions were there and everyone was quite intrigued by them. I’m the only mentor with hearing loss, and these meetings have been a struggle for me.  I’ve managed by using a neckloop with my laptop, while teaching others a lot about hearing loss. Today’s 90 minute discussion meeting was a breeze! So pleased that Zoom now has this service. It’s gold!

Wayne, First think is to update your Zoom version--very important since this is a new feature. Go here for PC or MAC. This would be the first thing to try since captions just came out for Zoom Pro:
