A frequent feedback we’ve heard since the pandemic is that with almost all 
meetings switched to Zoom platform, those who are hard of hearing have reporter 
improved access to conversations and proceedings. They can hear and follow the 
flows of meetings much better.

This reminds me: Zoom now has artificial intelligence closed captioning (they 
call it “Live Transcription”) for all Pro accounts now. It has to be enabled in 
the Settings on the Zoom account; under “Settings,” find Closed Captions 
setting and make sure to tick the button that enables “Live Transcription.”

Then, during meetings, the host has to turn on Live Transcriptions.

Those AI transcriptions aren’t always accurate but they can help folks follow 
along with what’s being said.
