Learn about Zoom Closed Captioning

Closed Captioning (CC) for Sunday Services is now here!

Live captions show up directly in the Zoom window and caption the speakers in real time. Attendees can decide whether or not to see captions in their own Zoom windows, change the size or turn off the captions.

Modifying Closed Caption Options

When enabled by the host, closed captions are automatically generated and capture the speakers in real time. And while the captioning is not always perfectly accurate, subtitles enhance the viewers ability to understand the speaker.

Changing the Caption Font Size

  1. Select Closed Captions.
  2. Click Subtitle Settings.
  3. Drag the slider next to Select Closed Caption Font Size to Normal, Medium, or Large.
  4. Close the window.

Turn Subtitles Off

  1. Select Closed Captions.
  2. Click Hide Subtitle.

Note: To turn subtitles on, go to Closed Captions > Show Subtitle.

Viewing a Full Transcript

Occasionally the captions will lag behind the speaker or disappear too fast for easy reading. The full transcript view allows the attendee to follow along at their own speed.

  1. Select Closed Captions.
  2. Click View Full Transcript.
  3. The transcript is viewed in a panel to the right.

Note: To turn off the transcript view, go to Closed Captions > Hide Full Transcript.

Saving a Transcript

  1. Go to the bottom of the transcript panel and select Save Transcript.
  2. Navigate to the desired folder and click Save.
