Creating captions with Google Slides

  • Updated

Although RingCentral does offer inbuilt closed captioning, you can also create captions for your Google Slides presentations. Keep in mind that this method works for live captioning only.

Before sharing your screen on RingCentral, open your presentation on the Google Slides page. Click the arrow button next to the Slideshow button and choose Presenter view.

On the Presenter View screen, hover over the bottom of the page and click the three dots, then click Captions preferences, and then Toggle captions. Start speaking and the captions will appear automatically. Be sure to speak clearly and at a normal speed.
