Anyone who will type captions for your meeting must have the role of Moderator. If you scheduled the meeting and entered first, you may be automatically given the Moderator role. For more information about how to assume and assign the Moderator role, see our guide here.
Once you are a Moderator, click the Closed Captions button on the left-hand side of the interface.
Then, click the button to enable captions for the meeting.
Once live captions have been enabled for the meeting, anyone who wants to view them must enable them, by clicking the button in the lower left corner.
Clicking this button will reveal a window where viewers can choose from several font and color options for their captions.
When the Moderator and viewers have both enabled captions, any words the moderator types in the captions entry field will appear on the screen for viewers.
Stenography tools may work if your computer and browser treat them like a regular keyboard. We don't officially support stenography hardware for caption input.
