Adobe caption pods in adobe connect.

According to this site, the Adobe caption pods which are extensions are
available free of charge to Adobe Connect customers. With the Adobe Connect
Closed Caption Pods extension from Adobe ensures that participants who are
deaf or hard of hearing may fully participate in online meetings and events.

To download the pod/extension click on this link

Meeting organizers hire professional captioning services from providers
such as the Media Access Group at WGBH, Caption Colorado, and Caption
First. Professional stenographers join the Adobe Connect meeting or
teleconference to listen to the audio and transcribe the information using
specialized stenographer’s keyboards. This information is transmitted to a
captioning server,  This YouTube video shows how it is done. They are using
Caption Colorado when we will be using Caption First for our demo

The captions are transmitted to the Adobe Connect Meeting and viewed by the
end users. Meeting participants have the ability to customize the caption
font size and color settings to enhance readability. Participants can even
skip back to re-read previous captions and then fast forward to the current
captions. Participants may individually choose to display or not to display
captions on their individual screen. Participants can optionally save the
captions as a transcript and download them at the conclusion of a meeting.

In closing

I will contact   Captions  First  to ask them to join us.  for the call.
