Set Your Recordings to Include Transcriptions

Create transcripts for recordings automatically so that, after the meeting or event, you can provide a transcript of the event along with the recording.

Designate Your Sign Language Interpreters as Panelists

In events, panelists can share their video and participate in discussions. If you plan to have a sign language interpreter in your event, designate them as a panelist so that attendees can see them.

Layout Customization for Participants

Meeting and event participants can customize their layout in multiple ways. For example, participants can bring a sign language interpreter prominently into their view by moving them to the stage. Make sure to identify your interpreters to your participants and remind them that they can move the interpreters to the stage to keep them in view.

Sync Your Stage to Lock Focus on the Interpreter for Everyone

As a host or cohost, you can also choose to lock the sign language interpreter to the stage to be front and center for everyone. Drag the interpreter to your stage and then sync it for everyone in the meeting or event. While you’re synced, the interpreter stays on the screen for everyone, even when there’s shared content.

The stage can hold up to four other participant videos. Make sure to leave room for other participants to move someone that they may need to see to their stage.

Sign Language to Speech Interpreters

Remind your interpreters that they can adjust how many participant videos appear in Grid view to more easily identify participants signing to their camera. The interpreter can then lock the videos of those participants in place to make sure they stay in focus.

Turn on the Webex Assistant to Enable Automated Closed Captions

If your Webex site has Webex Assistant enabled, make sure to turn it on so that your participants can view the automated closed captions. Closed captions includes real-time translation into over 100 languages


Note: Webex Assistant and automated closed captions are only available in Webex Meetings and Webex Events (New).

Use the Multimedia Panel for Third-Party Captioning

If you prefer to use a third-party captioning service in your event, use the Multimedia Viewer panel to share a remote Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) stream or a video stream of your sign language interpreter. A CART provider listens to speech and instantaneously translates all the speech to text.
