Worth noting though that this does not automatically generate CC in realtime unless you have a “writer” submitting text … this can be done by a Zoom participant but the likelihood of their typing speed being sufficient to keep up is slim – a third party vendor who is skilled in this would be the only realistic way of using this option. If you have a deaf student who uses CART then you can contact DAO/ARS for help with this.

So to recap the options for captioning right now

In realtime/synchronous sessions –

1. in Zoom – CC with third party vendor – needed if you have a deaf student
2. could use Otter.ai – machine generated captions – link can be shared with participants
3. the DAO is working on a third option to provide machine generated CC’s in Zoom in realtime

In asynchronous sessions –

1. in Zoom – record session to the Cloud and a captioned video file will come back to you some time later – you can publish/upload this
2. in Sakai/WarpWire – request captions when you upload the file – this has a cost though and the DAO/ARS can only approve videos where there is a captioning need as a result of you having a deaf student in class
3. upload video into YouTube and have this platform automatically generate captions – you can download this file, edit it to improve accuracy and upload again – share the URL
4. upload video into MS Stream and have this platform automatically generate captions – you can download this file, edit it to improve accuracy and upload again – share the URL
5. Use Translator in PowerPoint when recording a presentation – use English —> English setting – upload/share the file
