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. 


Integrated Zoom captioning

 


Re: Do not update to the latest version of Zoom if you use ASR captions and the API code #ZoomCaptions

 

I have copied/paste my email which addresses Ann's topic.If you want to see the comparison for yourself, send me a request and I will forward to you the actual email, so you have access to the zip files below. (I am not techy enough to know how to imbed my email here, so you that you would have access to the zip files--but if anyone knows  please let me know!)


-- Yael: In preparation of our 30 min meeting this week, I have done two separate tests, reading the same paragraph, using the two different Versions of Zoom:
Zoom Version 5.2.1 and Version 5.3.2 
I do notice that in the past we have been working on 5.3.1, so I am not sure what has been added to the .2 version...

Each of the two zip files include:
  • Video of Zoom meeting with Ava Captions reading the excerpt attached
  • Ava Transcript
  • Zoom Transcript
  • other default files
  • couple of screenprints of downgrade or upgrade
 
I read the following for both tests:

Re: Do not update to the latest version of Zoom if you use ASR captions and the API code #ZoomCaptions

Tony Ferack
 

I'm following up on the question from yesterday's webinar where Debbie Schaaf presented.  The question was regarding the CART delay using Zoom.  I have seen the delay while using paid CART.  It was back in April when everyone was just getting on board with videoconferencing.  I asked my CART provider about this and her response was "It could be the way the CART provider is streaming the captions through to Zoom.  If the CART provider is using a third party streaming company that could be a reason for the delay.  Also, it could be the internet or Zoom.  We don't use a third party streaming company and our software allows us to stream directly into Zoom". 


Introduction to Google for Nonprofits Webinar #free #webinar #Google

Alan Katsura, Moderator, CA Diablo Valley Chapter
 

I know many of you are "Zoomed out," but if anyone is interested - I spotted this on YouTube today. I guess you would describe it as a streaming webinar on YouTube by Google for Nonprofits - Live Q&A. I have never participated in this format before, so it may be interesting to see. The webinar is scheduled for 10/29/20 at 7:00 am. Since I am in California, I assume that it is for our time zone. Here is the link for those who are interested. Please follow this message and let others know what you thought of the experience. 

Google for Nonprofits is free to organizations that qualify. If you have the right type of people, it can be immensely beneficial to your organization.

Ann Thomas, HLAA Brand Ambassador
 

Take the HLAA survey—COVID-19 and its Impact on the HLAA Community

Deadline—The survey will close at midnight on Saturday, October 31, 2020. 

Click to take survey


We’re asking our HLAA community to take part in a unique opportunity to provide responses and thoughts to our survey, COVID-19 and its Impact on the HLAA Community. In partnership with Cochlear, we seek to gain and share insights to shed light on the obstacles being faced within the community of people with hearing loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe in the importance of raising awareness about challenges created by the pandemic to further advocate for people with hearing loss. The data collected from this anonymous survey will be shared with the media and used to tell the story of those challenges as well as the resilience within the HLAA community.


Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Jaynie Kind, CA Peninsula Chapter
 

On 10/2/20, Carolyn Odio and I tried using the host key, which is available on your Zoom profile. 

1. I sent her a link to a new meeting with a passcode and without recording enabled.  I gave her my host key ahead of time. 
2. She joined before the meeting started, and was able to get AVA going and start recording. 
3. I then joined the meeting. 

Side note:
4. She made me host and left the meeting. (We wanted to see if AVA would continue captioning even though she was the person who started the captioning.) And it did.


Speech to Text Apps

 

Carolyn,
No, I am referring to captioning Zoom meetings, videos, etc.  
Dan,
You were right!  I just turned off my Bluetooth and when I used a speech-to-text app, the volume on my hearing aids was not turned down!  Yay!
Thank you so much!

For cellphone calls I use InnoCaption (which captions my calls). Is this the situation to which you are referring?

Dear Ann,

Ah, yes, you are correct, as I found when I looked deeper just now.  You're probably correct about the copyright infringement too.  Still, the app works better for me than others have done, including AVA and Microsoft Translator.

Live Transcribe on Android is free, and it is amazingly good from what I've seen of it.

I'm sure AVA, Microsoft Translator, and others will improve with time, if they continue to be supported.

My apologies for any confusion.

The iPhone app you are referring to is not the same app as Gooogle Live Transcribe. Note the different logos.

At some point I imagine Google will address this copyright infringement.
