Zoom App To Launch Automatic Closed Captioning Feature

Zoom app has added a feature "Studio Effects" that allows users to add a variety of eyebrows, facial hair, and lip color during live video streams

Video conferencing app Zoom said it is working towards making “automatic closed captioning” available for all the free account holders to make the service more accessible. “Among the Zoom Meetings accessibility features we offer to all users are manual closed captioning, keyboard accessibility, pinning or spotlighting interpreter video, screen reader support, and a range of accessibility settings,” the company said in a blog post on Wednesday.

“Now we are excited to announce that we are looking to take our efforts a step further and are working towards making automatic closed captioning available to all of our users in the fall of 2021,” it added. For a free user who needs access to the feature, the company is allowing users to manually request access to the Live Transcription feature via a Google Form.
