Introducing live transcripts in Microsoft Teams meetings
September 4, 2020

Microsoft have announced that they will be adding in a live transcripts feature, it will provide another way to follow and review meeting conversations.

How could this affect you?
If you have enabled both cloud recording and transcription policies you will see two options in the meeting control bar:

  • Recording and Transcription
  • Transcription

Recording is combined with transcription. If you begin recording, the meeting will also feature a live transcription.

The transcript file will be accessible for download, after the meeting has finished, via chat as well as from the transcript lab. The meeting organiser will be able to delete the saved transcript when using the Teams desktop app.
