Closed Captioning

  • “Live” Closed Captioning (CC) is available by requesting Webex Assistant. There are a limited number of licenses available for staff and faculty.   Only the host needs a license. All participants will have the option to use or disable this feature. This feature is available to assist with ADA compliance, allow participants to simply follow along or assist with note taking.
