Zoom - Closed Captions

Zoom web conferencing includes an option that allows meeting hosts to provide closed captions for a meeting. Once enabled, the meeting host can assign the captioning function to a designated meeting participant. That captioner can then transcribe (type) the conversation into the CC tool. The closed captions are available to all meeting participants.

To enable captions:

  1. Login to sonomastate.zoom.us.
  2. Use your SSU Seawolf username and password to authenticate.
  3. In your Zoom profile, click the My Settings tab [view screenshot of step 3].
  4. In the section labeled In Meeting (Advanced), click Edit [view screenshot of step 4].
  5. Check Closed Caption [view screenshot of step 5 and 6].
  6. Click Save.
