Zoom is for Everyone
Accessibility is at the heart of what we do.
The Zoom difference: Communication without barriers
- Capabilities for all: Whether you’re a free or paid user, we have options for you
- Real-time interaction: Live transcriptions, so you don’t fall behind in the conversation
- Complete experience: Going beyond in-meeting support with post-meeting functionality, such as recording highlights and search
Captioning & Transcription Options
- Auto-generated captions
Zoom meetings and webinars automatically provide live captioning.
- Manual captions
Assign someone to type captions during the meeting.
- Third-party captioning
Zoom integrates seamlessly with third-party closed captioning providers using our Closed Captioning REST API.
A meeting host can spotlight the sign language interpreter so they are always in view for everyone.
Select the meeting participants you wish to prioritize and pin them for your own custom view.
Re-arrange Gallery View
Create your own view by clicking and dragging video tiles.
