Adding closed captioning to your session allows attendees to read what the speakers are saying, which can benefit your hearing-impaired audience. With Accelevents, you can integrate a 3rd party closed captioning platform through the iframe feature. Click here to learn more about adding closed captioning to your session.
However, if you don't have a closed captioning service added to your event, your attendees can still add closed captioning through their Chrome browser.
Enable Closed Captions through Chrome Settings
Click the 3 dot menu on the upper right corner of the browser
Enable Live Caption
Once this is enabled, any audio in English from the Chrome browser tab will be captured in the closed captioning.
