Video conference giant Zoom has announced that auto-generated captions (also known as live transcription) are now available on all free Zoom Meetings accounts.

This feature, which provides automatic captioning during a Zoom video call, is also available for paid Zoom Meetings and Zoom Video Webinars accounts.

How To Enable Auto-Generated Captions

Auto-generated captions automatically provide speaker subtitles on a Zoom video meeting or webinar. 

To get started, enable the feature via the Zoom web portal. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the Zoom support article.

If you are a single user within a multi-account, please work with your account admin to enable this functionality via the web portal for all users.

Participants can still privately request that the meeting host enable live transcription during the session using the meeting toolbar. Zoom also supports manual captioning as well as integration with third-party captioning services.
