Explains the settings available in a Virtual Classroom meeting.
To access Virtual Classroom meeting settings, click the vertical ellipses in the upper right corner of the screen and Open settings.
You will start on the Application settings page.
- You can turn on sound notifications for chat.
- You can turn on popup notifications for chat.
- You can change the size of the font by clicking the plus and minus icons.
You can also turn the Closed Captions on/off, select the caption language/font/size, background color, and text color.
When the Closed Captions are turned on, any meeting participant can take ownership and start typing the captions. If you are recording the Virtual Classroom meeting, the captions will be added to the recording.
Any participant who needs to view the live captioning within a Virtual Classroom meeting also has to enable captioning in their own meeting settings. The captions will automatically update within the Closed Captioning section, located on the bottom of the meeting page.
If a Virtual Classroom session with live captions is recorded and downloaded, a .vtt caption file will be included in the download folder.
