At last Zoom releases automatic subtitles
It is a fact that when a service has special characteristics, you have to pay for them. Any software or phone works for us, where the paid versions are the ones that display the most functions to use them in their entirety and with absolute freedom. But this does not mean that little by little companies improve their free versions, those that any user can enter.
And today we have good news for those who have Zoom, a videoconferencing app that during 2020 gained many followers. This time we have to talk about one of its newest functions, the automatic subtitles generated by the application itself.
Its operation is very simple, so much so that you have probably seen and used it on YouTube. In the part of the settings, right in the part of the subtitles, there will now be three interesting options: The first is to use the subtitles that a user can perform live by typing from their computer, the second is that you can use an external app to generate them and the third is this that we are telling you about live subtitles. The latter, in addition, It has a section in which users can request this function on their own if it is not enabled. You will only have to activate it to read the transcript of what the people in the room are saying.
A feature released almost a year after its release
As we mentioned, Zoom’s automatic subtitles were already launched last year. It was in September that this update occurred, when the firm also presented other functions such as multi-spotlight or mini-pinning. This will further enhance the company’s accessibility features by giving all users access to a live transcript of what users in the room are saying.
