During the Zoom Meeting: Screensharing

Enabling Features on Annotate

Sometimes it is helpful to use a red laser pointer or other features when sharing your document or slides. Go to the toolbar, click on annotate, then click on spotlight, and the red pointer will show up.

Screen-Sharing a Non-Captioned Video

Did you know that you can share a non-captioned video and have it transcribed if you have the transcription feature turned on? Although this feature is prone to errors,  if you do not have any other alternative, this might work. You also could preview the video using transcription and correct the errors. Be sure to check off your share sound settings.

Sharing audio with shared content

  1. Start or join a Zoom meeting. 

  2. Click on Share Screen  on the meeting toolbar.

  3. Select the program or desktop you wish to share.

  6. Click on Share in the bottom-right corner to begin sharing with your device's audio included. 


  • Sharing device audio can also be enabled after you have begun sharing by locating the share toolbar, clicking More, then selecting Share Sound.
