Zoom revealed that it has made the speech-to-text feature available to all users of its platform via applications or the desktop, in a move that aims to enable more users on the platform.
This feature uses artificial intelligence to recognize the spoken speech of users in different dialects, and then converts it to speech more like a translation so that everyone can understand the speech even if their dialect or ability to understand and hear all the words does not help them.
The new feature from Zoom is currently available in English, but the company said that it will work to provide it in other languages in the near future to support more users around the world.
The company used to provide this feature to users with accounts with paid subscriptions, but now it is available to all categories.
These were Zoom details that allow the speech-to-text feature for all users. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.

An automatic live transcription or closed captioning in English was announced for free platform accounts in February 2021.
The platform now says it plans to provide real-time transcription (for up to 30 additional languages) by the end of next year.
As part of this push, the platform is also offering transcription services for paid accounts, with a plan to support real-time transcription across up to 12 languages by the end of next year.
The platform was not able to share details about which languages are supported and when. But she said these improvements are a direct result of the machine learning expertise she gained with the acquisition of German transcription company Kites.
The basic drawing tools do not appear to be different from what the platform currently offers, as the main change is how it treats the whiteboard as a product alongside video calls, rather than an in-house feature.
You can add sticky notes, drawings, and comments across your boards and view them whenever you want.
And early next year Zoom is coming to Facebook’s Horizon Workrooms. The shared virtual reality meeting space can host video meetings and connect to the whiteboard.
In virtual reality, you can install the whiteboard across your virtual desk or on a wall for all to see. and drawing alongside colleagues attending a meeting through a traditional computer.
“We are committed to removing barriers to effective and dynamic communication,” the company said.
As part of its ongoing efforts to provide a connected user experience and streamline workflow, the platform plans to release widgets. With which you get a quick view of the meeting schedule, see who is in the meeting, and send a quick chat.
