Please enable the ability to turn on auto-transcription services regardless of Host.
As someone in the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community, captions have been an absolute life saver to my Zoom meeting experience. However, having to be reliant on the Host to enable the service is horrendous, especially if the Host can't make it for any reason and the meeting happens without them.
At my company we have the ability to use Live (Auto) Transcriptions, so this isn't the case of requiring someone to manually do the transcriptions.
To be clear, I am not asking about being able to save the transcriptions, and that feature could be disabled unless Host allows.
Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Slack Huddle... all already offer this feature as standard.
I simply want to be able to turn on captions (with "on by default" setting) for all zoom meetings, without asking for Host permission. This is an accessibility requirement.
Following up here as well. Given that transcription services are already available at higher tiers, and the functionality is inherently already there (and already available for basically every other video conferencing client out of the box) it's pretty absurd that, especially since the start of the pandemic and a huge boost in user base, that we still haven't seen this feature implemented for more than a certain tier of paid corporate accounts.
To be clear, I mean "feature implemented for more than a certain tier of paid corporate accounts" to mean the transcription, as implemented today.
I just had a Zoom call with a client that hosted their zoom, and I couldn't get transcriptions because their host did not have access to it. And this isn't the first time that I've been SOL because I don't have a way to even ask the host, unless they've paid enough money to offer it.
Have there been any updates on this initiative? My org is getting multiple requests for this feature and we are seeing users opt for Google Meet over Zoom frequently due to this lack of accessibility. Is it being prioritized in the development pipeline? When can we expect default captioning to launch?
Has anyone heard an update in regards to being able to turn on captions without the host's permission? Many of my client Zoom meetings are in conference rooms and it seems impractical to ask them to enable captions in every meeting. Is there an app I can download that works successfully in Zoom? I tried Verbit Live Transcription and World Translation and Captions apps offered in Zoom, but none of them worked. Can someone please assist? Greatly appreciate it!
Earlier this week I started noticing a slight difference in how captions displayed/activated in my company Zoom calls. At least at the Enterprise level (whichever my company's plan is at), we have gained the ability to activate captions without Host approval.
That said, I was on a Zoom call that my client hosted, and I was not able to enable captions for it, so it was definitely still tied to our Enterprise account.
Promising! But still not quite there.
I am on an Education enterprise account and meeting attendees still cannot start captions for themselves. Clicking the "Live transcript" CC button simply lets me request captions, not start them.
There is a new, cryptic account setting:
Allow users to enable automated captions in these languages in meetings.
It's necessary to note that I used this with Discord, and not Zoom, so your mileage may vary, and I don't have specific steps to use this with Zoom.
EDIT: Discord steps were produced from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/discordapp/comments/k2y555/how_to_get_closed_captions_in_discord_voice/
Seconding, thirding this. I join lots of international calls, and we often all struggle to understand each others accents!
And I'm not even hard of hearing. Or the sound goes out a bit, or someone comes by and says hi, etc.
REALLY would like ability to read transcribing of at least past few minutes of a meeting.
