I’m not quite sure when Zoom added this feature, but you can now enable automatic subtitling in English when you’re in a video conference using the tool.
Avriel Ogawa, a very talented colleague, shared these instructions today:
Go to settings on the navigation bar on the left of the screen.
Scroll down to In Meeting Advanced
Then, scroll down to Closed Captioning and toggle it on
Of course, both Google Meet and Microsoft PowerPoint provide subtitles in the language of your choice, so this feature pales in comparison.
Nevertheless, it’s a great asset, especially to those of us who teach English Language Learners.
