Sounds good to you? We'll tell you how to achieve all of that.
You definitely want to leverage real-time captions on your usual video call app. Here's how to enable them on common video conferencing tools:
Go to the application settings and go to the "In Meeting (Advanced)" section. There, you’ll be able to turn on captioning for each of your meetings.
When you have entered a meeting, you can then go to the automatic captioning tab and enable real-time transcription.
On Google Meet, you just need to click the CC captioning tab. It's that simple. Note that this option is only available for meetings on Google Workspace accounts.
When you are a meeting leader in Microsoft Teams, you have access to many options in the scroll tab. Among them, you will find the manual and automatic (cc) transcription options.
It might happen that you are looking for a transcription solution outside your video call apps (for your webinars, conferences, on-site discussion, or streaming...).
In this case, you can check for the following alternatives :
In 2019, Google launched a well-known phone application to help deaf and hard-of-hearing people in their daily lives: Google Live Transcribe. It provides them with a real-time transcription of every conversation they can have. It's also a simple and accessible tool for anyone who wants to record, annotate and share a real-life discussion.
There are many real-time transcription APIs on the market that allow you to capture data audio, whether from streaming, phone calls, or online meetings. By connecting these APIs to your business applications, you can record, report or analyze voice data without constraints. You just need to make sure the integration from one application to another work.
If none of these options work, you can still hire a professional or non-professional transcriber. This can be a meeting attendee, a member of your staff, or even a freelance transcriber. This way you can make your events, conferences, and other important group meetings accessible to everyone. The choice is yours!
