LiveCaption free automatic captions now available for desktop and laptop computers running CHROME.  

Live Captions on iMAC under Chrome-settings-advanced-toggle on LiveCaptions

DOES WORK ON ZOOM CALLS!!!!

as long as we join the Zoom call through the Chrome browser and not an app!!

TIP: Although Chrome said it was up to date and it was running version 89, LiveCaption did not show up under accessibility until I downloaded Chrome again and replaced the version that was already on my iMAC.

This is really really good news, thanks for posting this. My wife and I joined a meeting only yesterday on Zoom and she had not the faintest idea of what was said. Zoom is terrible for subtitles, I've looked into their captioning and it is quite complicated. By connecting to zoom via the Chrome app, Livetranscribe can show subtiles..... can't wait for next meeting to try this out..... I'll certainly report back on how we get on!
