Did you know you can add captions to your Zoom recordings? In accordance with the UH Guidelines for Accessible Technology and Digital Media, courses and course content should be accessibility compliant. One way to ensure your videos like your Zoom recording videos are accessibility compliant is to include captioning on them.
Recently, Zoom has included transcriptions for recorded meetings that can be downloaded through the cloud service. The UH Zoom Cloud Service is managed by UH ITS, and allows faculty and staff to save their recorded meetings to the cloud for download.
In the first Zoom tutorial video we will show you step-by-step instructions to request access to the UH Zoom Cloud Service (if you haven’t already), how to change your Zoom settings to enable transcriptions (one-time only step), and how to download files from the cloud service.
It is highly recommended to download the video recording and transcript files from the UH Zoom Cloud Service before uploading and embedding the video to Laulima. There are two options, you may upload your recording and captions to Google Drive. Or, you may upload your recording and captions to YouTube.
In the second Zoom tutorial video, we will show you how to upload the video file (.mp4) and transcript file (.vtt) to Google Drive. Then, we will show you to embed the Google Drive video into Laulima Lessons.
In the third Zoom tutorial video, we will show you how to upload the file (.mp4) and transcript file (.vtt) to YouTube. Then, we will show you how to embed the YouTube video into Laulima Lessons.
