Setting up a live human captioner
Zoom supports live human-generated captions. The meeting Host must arrange for a captioner to attend.
1. Before Meeting:
Arrange for a captioner to attend the meeting.
Frequently asked questions:
How do I arrange for a captioner?
The meeting host can set this up with firstname.lastname@example.org(link sends e-mail), our contact at ACS (Alternative Communications Services). Duke's ACS contact will arrange for a captioner to be an attendee. The meeting host would assign them as the captioner. Details are shown in the next step.
How far in advance do I need to schedule a live captioner?
As much as possible, but a day or two will work.
How much is live human-generated captioning going to cost?
About $100 per hour.
How would billing work?
ACS generally will invoice weekly, but they are flexible. You will need to provide the name/email of who to invoice.
Ensure captioning is enabled in your account before the meeting starts.
Note: You only need to do this once. It will remember this setting for all your meetings.
