Guide to Virtual AHA Live Captioning

What gets captioned?

All staff-produced Virtual AHA webinars will have live captioning available. Due to technical constraints, interactive workshops and/or events that feature breakout groups cannot be automatically captioned. Please email virtualaha@historians.org at least two weeks before the scheduled workshop or event to request captioning. This will allow time to arrange for captioning for breakout discussions. If you are unsure if the virtual event you are interested in will be live captioned, please contact virtualaha@historians.org.

Using Live Captions

Captions can be viewed by enabling them from the toolbar in the webinar window. A full transcript is also available from the captions menu. Detailed instructions are available from Zoom.

Workshops and/or Breakout Rooms

Please contact virtualaha@historians.org at least two weeks before the scheduled workshop to request captioning. Staff will respond to your request with instructions for viewing live captions for your event.
