How to view Teleconference Captioning Service (TCS) captions:

  1. Join conference bridge or web conference link
  2. Click on the TCS link in your confirmation email or TCS link provided by host
  3. Begin reading captions from captioning window.

  • Your words appear on the real-time streaming display.
