MASSACHUSETTS — When schools across the country closed last March and districts started holding classes by Zoom and Google Meet, many students struggled to keep up. The new technology was a challenge for students and teachers alike, and many parents were left frustrated.
Zoom plans to roll out support for automatic closed captioning to free accounts this fall as part of its efforts to make the service more accessible, the company has announced. If you’re a free account holder who needs access to the feature before then, Zoom is allowing users to manually request access to the Live Transcription feature via a Google Form linked to in its announcement.

Every year, there is an american sign language version of the national anthem nearby the main stage. Those signers are shown for one second or so literally every year. The deaf community is tired of being ignored and we request a PIP or half screen showing both versions at the same time. This is not the first time this issue came up and we would appreciate it if ASL was shown in its entirety going forward. Also make sure the ASL part is not obsecured by closed captioning or frames so that we can appreciate the full message.
