Zoom has incorporated Captions #ZoomCaptions

 

Wow Zoom has captions! You may have already known about this but just in case, I am passing this along. I just learned about it. 
 
Since I do not have a free account, rather I have a paid account, I do not know if the free account has this functionality. 
 
1) I am on Version 5.4.4 and here is where you update your zoom account...just in case you need to:
 
 
I just went into settings and turned it on. 
Here is what it looks like. Go ahead and try it.
 
2) Go to www.zoom.us:

3) And then when you enter the meeting, as a host, you need to click on the CC Icon and click on: Live Transcript: Enable Auto Transcription!

You can increase/decrease the font size in the chat window when there are closed captions. From the CC icon, CC > Subtitle Settings > Accessibility > Chat Display Size. 
If there aren't closed captions, go to your video settings (use the caret next to the video camera icon) and then Accessibility.
When I started a Zoom meeting, I was able to use the Control +/- as a host. I wasn't able to do so as a co-host or participant. I am using a PC desktop with W10.

Zoom Tip - Chat #zoom

 

CHAT--Change Size of Type
I noticed that if you bring up Chat (on the Mac) you can hold down the command key and click on the plus or minus to change the size of the type. Alan brought up a good point, as this does not work on the PC. Does it work on the PC some other way? I could not make that work on an iPhone or iPad as I have no idea how to hold down a key on either device. Maybe someone else knows. Making Chat a Pop-Out also helps to enlarge the Chat screen itself. Helpful for low-vision folks!

CHAT--Save Chat
Just a reminder that you can save chat: Open Chat; Click on bottom right 3 dot menu; Save Chat. (I do not see that option on the iPhone or iPad.) I do believe that also works on the PC.

Zoom Recording Disclaimers

There have been discussions about personal privacy in recorded meetings. Many meetings, including all the HLAA meetings and webinars, are recorded and posted in various manners for later viewing. I searched this group and also the HLAA Leaders group and did not find any mention of this subject. Zoom does have a feature that requires all participants to consent to be recorded or leave the meeting. For additional information, follow the link in the title.

Dear Alan and all:

Alan, thanks for sharing what you know.  Just to clarify, is HLAA using the free version of Groups.io (with grandfathered calendar feature)?

I've setup a preliminary google groups group for our chapter that the steering committee has been playing around with.  Seems okay, so far.

Groups.io looks like it might be easier, and I may give that a try.

Steve

Hi Steve

I'm just a volunteer moderator for this group. I do not know the history of the decision on using Groups.io. I do know the person who was probably associated with setting this up is very capable.

I'm not familiar with Google Groups so I cannot go through the advantages and disadvantages of each platform. If you are considering Google Groups because you have a G Suite for Nonprofits (formerly Google for Nonprofits) it might be nice to have as much as possible in one place for your chapter. A glance at Google Groups leads me to believe Groups.io has more features but you may not need them.

Hashtags, chat, polling, photos directory, files, databases, and Wiki are features I did not see in Google Groups. The calendar is no longer included with the free Groups.io plan. It is grandfathered into our plan. The HLAALeaders group uses the calendar feature to create a national calendar for chapter meetings.

Hi Alan,

Question for you, if you have the time.

I was looking into setting up a google group for our HLAA Greater Baltimore Chapter, and I slowly came to realize that the Groups setup by HLAA National are not Google Groups, but use a different technology from a different company called groups.io.  This very email that I'm writing now is going to HLAATech at groups.io.

So, what about groups.io?

Did you look into using groups.io instead of google groups?  Should chapters be looking into Groups.io?

Thanks for any comments you might have.

Steve Wonnell

Re: Captions cover Mouth (iPad) Zoom Ticket #8198634 #ZoomCaptions

 

You are correct. I notice that too--that in this forum format you cannot double click it. I also added another screen shot example of the problem.
Here is the content of the email of Nov 10th from Michael Lampa:

Hi Carolyn,

Good day, 

I have submitted a ticket to our engineering team to have this checked.

Will let you know once we receive a response. 


Thanks
Michael

Yes,  need an option to be able to move the caption box.  No one position is suitable at all times.  I will make a suggestion that you can open full subtitles and it will appear on one side rather at the bottoms but of course will further reduce the viewable screen of people you are trying to see.

Re: Integrated Zoom captioning

I need clarification.  Is it just the ‘host’ who needs to have otter ai, or does everyone who wants to see captions have to have it? Our chapter has the Zoom Pro program, but it is in my name.

What about those who are professionally retired or stay at home parent(s)?

There are people not willing to pay extra $$ as Katie Wright stated.

Hopefully, the Otter.ai runs on the same server as the Zoom backend (or at least in the same server farm), to address the inherent latency of the Zoom Closed Caption REST API architecture. And hopefully, the Zoom Live Transcribe feature will, with tighter integration, identify the display name of the speaker, similar Google Meet.

Make it easier on everybody - use tags (#) #search #help #tags

Alan Katsura, Moderator, CA Diablo Valley Chapter
 

Hi users,

You can help make your message easily searchable by using "tags." When you start a new topic, after your title, click on the dropdown menu "Add Tags" or create your own new tags by using the "#" symbol and words that will make your message topic searchable. Click on the "Add Tags" dropdown menu to see examples. Now when you go to messages, click on the "Hashtag" button and select the topic you are researching. It will list everything with that hashtag. 

Currently, there is a wealth of information on captioning within Zoom and captioning in general. There has been a lot of time and effort in finding ways to incorporate captions into video conferencing platforms, particularly Zoom. People have created trial accounts and tested ways to get captions into Zoom or have captions available only to the attendee. Only two messages are tag with "#ZoomCaptioning." You can do a normal search, but that will show all messages with the search word in the content even if that word is not the focus of the message.

Don't let your hard work go unnoticed!

Re: Integrated Zoom captioning

I believe this has been available for a while now. But it also requires a paid Otter a.i. account @ $13/month or $99/year. That is NOT accessibility. Zoom needs to get their own act together.
