At the bottom of my transcript, there was a memo noting “captions powered by otter”.

I just attended a meeting with the new Zoom captioning and it did exceptionally well.

 

Are there any hints as to whose ASR system is behind the curtain?

Zoom has initiated free captions for paid Zoom accounts. If you have a paid Zoom account you need to check can additional setting in your Zoom web portal. Enable live transcription service… See the image below. After you do that  your CC icon in your  Zoom window will change. It will now have additional text that says Live Transcript.  Click on the CC button and select Enable Live Transcription. If you have been using Otter captions you will need to disconnect the Otter live stream.

Hi Cheri,

That depends on what kind of features you are looking to add and update for your Wordpress site. If you can provide a little more background information, I would be glad to offer what I know. 

A couple of notes to pass along. 

1. This is the go-to site for anything Wordpress related, including searching for plugins and widgets:

2. For reviews of Wordpress plugins and themes, check out this site:

Hope this helps!

I’ve also participated where one of the breakout rooms was captioned, and it was the one I was assigned to and was appropriate for my interests.

Carolyn, you are awesome!  Thanks for the video.  This confirms the test that I tried this morning.  Maybe in time Zoom will be able to handle captions in breakout rooms.

Tony, in my experience the Zoom Captions and Transcript don't work while you are in a breakout room. When you return to the main room, you need to reinitiate them by clicking on "Show Subtitles". I did a video to demo this and you, can replicate what I did, to test it yourself.

Carolyn,

Your You Tube was so easy to understand.  Thanks so much.  I've already made the changes to my account and had a Zoom meeting with  myself and the captions were great!  Thanks again.

Yes. But i didn't do anything special. Captions come at the bottom of the screen and I can move them under the speaker. I also have a transcript option.
Sorry, I can't be more helpful!~

Zoom has incorporated Captions #ZoomCaptions

 

Cheri,
Are you saying that you are getting captions with Zoom without opening a separate window for Otter?  I just updated my Zoom to 5.4.6 but no captions.  I have a free Otter account and sometimes open Otter in one window, open Zoom in another and size them to both fit on the screen.  But sounds like you are getting captions at the bottom of your Zoom screen without opening Otter.  Is that right???
Thanks,
Marilyn

This is very confusing with everyone contributing.  I tried today and ask two options. User type captions or use API code.  Would someone please give a direct non confusing answer.   When ask API code, it copies,  now what????????

Have a great day.
