Live transcription is the process by which speech or audio is converted into a written text document. This feature is available on the RingCentral desktop and mobile app.
 
With the live transcription feature, you can: 
  • Catch up on the meeting even if you joined late. 
  • Follow a conversation and search for specific keywords during the meeting.
  • Notify participants once the live transcription starts.
Note: Only hosts or moderators can start or pause the live transcription. Participants will not see the live transcription until the host or moderators start it.

Admins can enable, disable, and configure live transcription settings via the RingCentral online account.
