Video Closed Captions are designed to help participants with hearing impairment, different levels of language proficiency, or for those joining a meeting with a lot of background noise. To get the best quality from Closed Captions:
  • Use a headset microphone,
  • Pronounce your words as clearly, and 
  • Speak slowly and evenly.

Enabling Closed Captions

  1. Click the More icon from within the meeting window.
  2. Select Enable closed captions.
Tap Enable closed captions
Once enabled, the conversation will initially display at the bottom of the meeting. You can then pin or unpin the closed caption text box. All text will appear next to the speaker’s name. The text will disappear from the screen shortly after another person speaks.
