All UIUC Zoom members may now use Zoom’s built-in live transcription feature free of charge and with no time restrictions. This feature allows for real-time transcription during meetings, and is built using Otter.ai technology.
Zoom chose our university as a part of their testing group for the feature. While it is a huge improvement on Zoom meeting accessibility, it is still “in beta,” and some users may still need to purchase a separate Otter.ai license to meet accessibility accommodations.
In order to use Zoom live transcription, users must enable in their user settings prior to starting a meeting. For instructions, check out our Zoom, Live Transcription Knowledgebase article which will be updated as we get more info.
