Automatic captions and transcripts on Zoom

The University has recently moved all Uni Zoom accounts onto the Zoom cloud, which means many more features are available.

Importantly, anyone with a Univesrsity Zoom account will now be able to turn on automatic live captions during calls, and generate automatic transcripts of meetings or webinars.

Using live captions and transcripts are important ways to make meetings and webinars accessible. Find out more about how to make your meetings accessible.

Fun Fact

You’ve probably heard the myth that daddy-long-legs spiders' (Pholcus Phalangioides) venom is the most toxic to humans, but that their fangs are too small to pierce human skin. Neither of these things are true. MythBusters has shown that they can pierce human skin and that their venom is quite mild. The Australian Museum suggests that the myth is likely based on their ability to kill redback spiders.
