Check out this great new Teams feature to transcribe your next meeting!

Meeting hosts can now run a meeting with transcription enabled and participants will have the option to view the transcript live on screen and/or access the transcript to view after the meeting ends.

Turn on/off the meeting transcription service from the ‘Record and transcribe’ menu accessed from the ellipses in the meeting toolbar.
