ANNOUNCING: Adding Live CC to Your Zoom Events (webinar)

Cousin Russ and I are pleased to share news of an upcoming free training webinar for Zoom Hosts wishing to add live CC to their upcoming Zoom Meetings and Zoom Webinars.

We added an automatic service a week ago, and we have noticed how closed captioning facilitates greater interaction during our live virtual events. Members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community no longer need to wait to view our recordings on YouTube with it's free CC option.

During this Host training webinar, we will discuss:
  • Free options within Zoom for CC and language translation.
  • How Zoom's API script can activate automatic live CC and language translation with a third party service.
  • Orienting presenters and panelists.
  • Orienting Deaf and Hard of Hearing participants.
  • The advisability of activating CC and language translation in an open or closed registration for Zoom Meetings and Zoom Webinars.

If you need a time zone converter, this is the one I recommend:

Registrants will receive an automatic confirmation email with their personal link to join the webinar. Zoom also sends out reminders 1 week, 1 day and 1 hour before the event is scheduled to go live.

Seating is limited. You may register, but attendance is on a FCFS basis.

If your society is considering how to begin hosting virtual events, DearMYRTLE's You, Too, Can Zoom video will describe the Zoom service, without the CC option.

If you value the interactive genealogy education provided in DearMYRTLE webinars, please consider donating. THANK-YOU in advance.

Happy family tree climbing!
