Hey @tommy ,
We do not have an endpoint to fetch the closed caption url programmatically yet.
Ok, then I believe closed captions are not a viable solution for sending notifications to live meeting participants until cc url can be generated programatically or fetched via API.
closed_caption attribute only makes closed captions buttons visible in the Zoom app and allows the host to configure closed captions. Despite
closed_captions attribute is enabled, closed captions visibility is by default disabled, and they are not displayed in the Zoom app by default.
In order for the closed captions to be displayed, participants need to turn the cc display on.
Host on Zoom desktop app in order to see the captions needs to select ‘Show Subtitles’:
Participants who join via Web, need to click on “Closed Captions” button for it to turn green and then they see the captions, otherwise captions are not displayed by default on the screen, despite being broadcasted.
If closed captions solution is supposed to be a workaround for sending notifications to people during a live meeting, then the display of broadcasted closed captions needs to be enabled by default. We can’t expect participants to remember that they need to click on “closed captions” button in order to start receiving the notifications.
