View audio subtitles in meetings

If you want to quickly scan through what was said in a meeting without sitting through a full-length recording, or find it difficult to hear what is spoken while you’re in a meeting, simply activate real-time meeting audio subtitles, and then view a transcript that contains all subtitles that were generated during the meeting.

To view in-meeting subtitles with 8x8 Video Meetings:

  • Click the Start/stop subtitles icon to view real-time subtitles of what participants say in the meeting. If you are joining via your mobile app, tap the More actions icon first to see this option.

    As long as one or more participants are viewing real-time subtitles, the subtitles generated are recorded in a transcript, indicated by a TR icon in the upper-right corner of the meeting screen. Even if a transcript is already being generated, all participants who want to see subtitles in real time must enable Start/stop subtitles for themselves.

To access a transcript of in-meeting subtitles after a meeting:

  1. If at least one person was viewing subtitles during a meeting, the subtitles captured are saved in a meeting transcript.

    Note: The transcript includes only portions of the meeting during which at least one participant was viewing real-time subtitles.

    After the meeting ends, go to Meetings > Recents to see your list of recent meetings. If a meeting has one or more files associated with it, including transcripts, a Files icon shows up next to the meeting.

  2. From the list of meetings, select the desired meeting to see the details and transcript associated with it.
  3. From the meeting details, click Transcription to view the meeting transcript.
  4. When viewing the transcript, you have the ability to download the transcript by clicking the Download icon.
