In Microsoft Teams, we will be releasing a feature that allows meeting organizers to transcribe meetings automatically if the meeting has been set to be recorded. This will make the recording playback experience accessible. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 97842.
If meeting organizer set the “Record automatically” meeting option to on for a meeting, Transcription will be turned on together with Recording when the meeting starts, if transcription is allowed by admins. This will make recording playback experience accessible.
When this will happen
GA: We will begin rollout in late August and expect rollout to be completed by mid-September.
Government Clouds: We will begin rollout in mid-September and expect rollout to be completed by mid-October.
How this will affect your organization
Live transcription can make your meetings (and calls) more productive and inclusive for participants who are deaf or hard-of-hearing or have different levels of language proficiency.
When the meeting organizer sets the Record automatically meeting option to On for a meeting, Transcription will now also be turned on with Recording when the meeting begins, if Transcription is allowed by admins.
What you need to do to prepare
If transcription is on in your tenant, this feature will be automatically enabled, to review and change the transcription policy, please follow admin documentation for meetings.
Notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
