Live Transcription Now Available in Microsoft Teams

Related services: Microsoft Teams

To improve accessibility and provide better context after meetings for notes that were taken in the meeting, live transcription is now available in Cornell Microsoft Teams.

During any Teams meeting, you can start a live transcription of the discussion. The text appears alongside the meeting video or audio in real time, including the speaker's name (unless they chose to omit it) and a time stamp. Before turning on live transcription for a meeting, make sure to announce to attendees that you're about to do so and get their consent.

In addition to better accessibility and support for notes, live transcription also is useful for attendees that have different levels of language proficiency and participants who are in noisy places. The feature is only available in the desktop version of Teams.
