Microsoft Audio Transcript

New Microsoft Audio Transcript will add audio to text

A new audio transcription feature debuting in Microsoft 365, which will save users time and money. This added feature should make users wonder when Google Docs will catch up.

Uploading audio to Word is enabled by this new transcription feature, which as part of Microsoft 365 is debuting today on the Web and users will receive a transcript with one piece of dialogue inserted in the document at a time.

For the live audio, a Dictate button has been provided, if users want to write and edit live. But, there are some limitations, if the audio is being captured by users through the iOS Voice Memos app or any other program. MP3, MP4, WAV, and M4A formats are supported by transcription and the upload limit is 200 MB. It was first mentioned by Microsoft in a blog that, in October 2019, this feature will reach Word.
