Audio transcription automatically transcribes the audio of a meeting or webinar that you record to the cloud. After this transcript is processed, it appears as a separate VTT file in the list of recorded meetings. In addition, you have the option to display the transcript text within the video itself, similar to a closed caption display. When sharing a cloud recording, you can enable or disable if viewers can see the transcript.
The transcript is divided into sections, each with a timestamp that shows how far into the recording that portion of the text was recorded. You can edit the text to more accurately capture the words, or to add capitalization and punctuation, which are not captured by the transcript.

Note: The audio transcript may take additional time to process after the cloud recording video/audio has processed.
Audio transcripts are saved in VTT format. If you download the VTT file, you can open it with a text editor or word processing application. You can also view or edit transcripts in the web portal.
The transcript is automatically embedded within the audio and video file, but is hidden by default. To see the transcript in the audio or video file:
You can search for text within the audio transcripts for your own cloud recordings. If you're an admin, you can also search all audio transcripts in the account.
