Microsoft's Latest Garage App is For Recording Group Transcriptions
Microsoft's newest Garage app, the company's brand for more experimental apps, is Group Transcribe, which lets groups of people capture real-time collective meeting transcriptions using their phones. It's available for free right now on iOS. From a report: "This app uses a multi-device approach to provide real-time, high quality transcription and translation, so users can be more present and productive during in-person meetings and conversations," Microsoft's Lainie Huston said in a blog post. Here's how it works. Everyone who wants to participate in the group transcription needs to download the Group Transcribe app. Then, one person kicks off a transcription, and they can invite others to join by sharing a five-letter conversation code, a QR code, or by joining the group transcription with nearby sharing over Bluetooth. Then, the app will begin transcribing the group's conversation, noting who said what. Group Transcribe can even also auto-translate things people say and show those translations in line as part of the transcription. Transcriptions are saved in the app so you can review or share them after a meeting. Read more of this story at Slashdot.
