The new application, Group Transcribe, launched by the Microsoft Garage team, introduces a new concept for capturing spoken conversations in meetings in real time as a more collaborative process; It transcribes the dialogue taking place between the participants in the meeting on their own devices with higher accuracy, and provides simultaneous interpretation of the spoken languages of more than 80 different languages.
The company explained that to use the application, one person must start the meeting first on his own device, and then invite others to join the meeting via Bluetooth technology or the QR code, which can be scanned by the phone or even by sharing a link to the meeting, and then he will see Everyone has a transcript of their dialogue directly on their devices.
The new application, based on artificial intelligence-based language and speech processing technology, is able to record spoken dialogue with greater accuracy and distinguish the speaker based on his voice level captured through the microphone of each phone used in the meeting. It can also provide translation on the devices of other meeting participants in the language they speak if one of the participants speaks their language.
