The Ultra experience now provides live closed captioning. This provides an accessible learning experience for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as for students whose native language is different from the moderator's.
Moderators must make participants captioners. Captioners type what is being said during a session. Other participants can view what is being typed in real time. You can have multiple captioners for multiple languages.
Captions are included when a session is recorded.Detailed instructions for Moderators:https://help.blackboard.com/en-us/Collaborate/Ultra/Moderator/075_Live_Closed_Captioning
