Zoom -- Captions and Transcripts

Everyone at Drexel has a Zoom Pro account at https://drexel.zoom.us

Always use https://drexel.zoom.us for your Drexel Zoom meetings, and click “Sign in Standard.”

If you record a Zoom session, you can get machine-generated auto-captioning,
by doing the following before you start the Zoom meeting
(and you can leave it enabled for future Zoom meetings).

Do these steps just once.

  1. Visit https://drexel.zoom.us , click “Sign In Standard,” & login.
  2. Click “Settings.”
  3. Click “Recording."
  4. Make sure “Audio transcript” is checked (and click “Save” if you make changes).

Do these steps after each recording.

  1. Wait 3 hour recording could take 5-7 hours or up to 1 day to process.
    Shorter recordings usually take less time.
    Make sure you clicked “End Meeting for All” at end of meeting and didn’t just leave the meeting,
    or your processing/wait time will be delayed until the meeting ends itself after 24 hours.
  2. After the recording is ready (or to check if it's ready),
    go to https://drexel.zoom.us ,
    click “Sign In Standard,”
    & click “Recordings."
  3. Click the recording, and download the .srt or .vtt “audio transcript.”
    A .srt or .vtt file is a plain text (a file with only text and no formatting) that has time stamps in a certain format.
    You should be able to open it in Microsoft Word.
    Contact ihelp@drexel.edu if you have issues.
    If you need the timestamps removed,
