Transcription During Your Event With Our Transcript App

With our Transcript app, you can have transcripts of the speeches in the sidebar of your room in order to follow along with what is being said during your event.

Also, you will be able to keep a written record of the speakers' speech as you can export it right away. It allows you to easily create meeting recaps and send them for language analysis if needed. 

Furthermore, in terms of accessibility, transcripts will be useful for attendees with hearing impairments to follow along.

The speakers must be using Chrome in order to get their speech transcripted as it's powered by Google. The transcripts won't work with speakers using other browsers.

Transcript Specifications

  • The Transcript app only works with speakers on a Chrome browser.
  • You can only transcribe in one language at a time - the language of the event (DashboardEvent > Settings > General > Language).
  • We recommend using headphones/earphones for better accuracy.
  • You don't need to start your event to start transcribing.
