UF offers several software platforms that offer automatic captioning or transcriptioning functionality. Captioning appears embedded within the video while it plays, and transcriptioning may be available via a separate document, or may display outside of the video window.
Automated captioning does not meet ADA requirements for fully accessible videos because of lower accuracy rates.
Automatic transcripts and captions generated by Zoom and Stream are a great starting point for creating accessible content and can be edited for accuracy.
Zoom automatic audio transcripts will create a draft transcript that will need to be reviewed, edited, and enabled as closed-captioning.
For more information visit our Zoom Closed Captions and Live Transcription page.
Captions will only happen live. They are not available in the recorded version of the meeting.
Note: When you turn on captions, they will only be visible to you on your device. In order for other participants in the meeting to see captions, they will have to turn captions on as well.
