Club Zoom Live Captions Request

Bates College provides a premium Zoom account to all students free of charge. Zoom does not offer live auto-captioning as a basic feature, which is required for virtual club activities.

As a reminder, Google Meet provides live auto-captioning as a standard feature, so we highly recommend that you try using Google Meet with your club before requesting Zoom live captions. You can view information about how to schedule Google Meet calls using Google Calendar here. To our knowledge, the only feature that Zoom offers that is currently not possible with Google Meet is breakout rooms.

If you’d like to request Zoom live auto-captioning for your club, please complete the form below. Only one member per club may have live auto-captions with their account. We’ll be in touch soon!

If you can’t view the form below, make sure you’re logged into your Bates Google account, and go here to view the form in another window.
