[Transcript: Ever wished for captions during a VRS call? Well, guess what? There’s a hack you can use! Google’s Live Caption feature on Chrome can caption anything on the web… including calls using Convo Link!
Let me show you how to turn it on. [The visual demo of showing steps to turn on Google auto captions plays.]
Here’s what it looks like with Convo Link! [The visual demo of showing Google ‘s Live Caption with Convo Link plays.]
Google has been working on making their platforms and apps more accessible, and Live Caption may be a useful tool to use with Convo Link.
Important to remember: Live Caption is auto captioning provided by Google, and Convo is not responsible for its accuracy. Also, please know that Live Caption is a tool not intended to replace VRS, but to add value to your experience if you’d like.

[ID: Black background. An image of Ian, a Latino male, wearing a black shirt and black glasses against a black background. On the right, green and white text that reads ‘Tip Thursday: Did you know you can use Google Live Captions with Convo Link?’ Green text on the bottom of the screen, logo that reads, “CONVO”
The screen slides to the left and opens on Ian, a Latino male with black glasses and a black shirt against a dark gray background. A side-by-side demo slides to the right, showing Google Chrome’s app icon on the desktop’s dock, and follows the whole sequence throughout turning on Live Caption.
The screen jumps back to Ian fully before switching to login.convo.io’s log-in screen and the demonstration plays a deaf vrs caller calling through an interpreter, just as Google’s Live Caption pops up visible on the bottom center of the screen.
The screen jumps back to Ian. Black pop up on bottom of the screen with white and green text that reads “signup.convorelay.com”. Screen changes to green background with white text that reads ‘CONVO’.]
