Live Transcription in Zoom

It is now possible to activate a live, computer-generated transcript in your Zoom meetings. There will be a Live Transcript button in your meeting controls for any meeting that you are hosting. 

Note: You should not assume that this will meet the requirements for a captioning accommodation. Contact DRES if you have a letter of accommodation, to assure that you are meeting requirements.
