How to transcribe a recording made on Teams

Microsoft Teams Recording functionality

The Microsoft Teams recording functionality is great for recording minutes of meetings (whilst observing Privacy rights of course). The only challenge then is where to find it once you’ve finished and how to transcribe a recording made on Teams.

Teams channel meeting

If you schedule the meeting in a Teams channel then all channel members will see the recording in the post once the meeting has finished. It takes a while to appear… but it will! That will also be saved to the files within the channel.

Private meeting

I regularly schedule meetings from Client emails so we all have the context of the meeting Agenda. To do that you just need to select the ellipsis (the three dots) and select ‘meeting’ and then ‘Teams Meeting’ in the ribbon menu.

Microsoft Recording location

You can dismiss the recording at any time during the conversation. Once the meeting has ended you will find the recording in the chat area.

Select the ellipsis again and ‘Open in OneDrive’. Once opened download the file and save to your chosen location.

If you’re not already logged into your Microsoft account then do so and go to Stream.

From the menu ribbon select Create and Upload video.

Once uploaded you will have several options. The one thing you shouldn’t do is ‘publish’ or share with others if that is not the intention.

By default Stream will create not only the file but the transcript of the file. This is in vtt file format but can be opened in opened in any text editor, such as Notepad on Windows, or Textedit on a Mac.

When it downloads click the down arrow and ‘show in folders’. You can then right click the file and select ‘open with’.

From here you can edit the file or share as it is! Happy recording.

Friendly and approachable, but also excellent technically. As a barristers chambers we have industry-specific data protection requirements. Penntech showed in-depth knowledge about the interaction between these requirements and technical IT aspects.

Penntech helped us migrate and merge our inbox's for our small restaurant and bar group. They were super efficient and got everything done within 24 hours. I highly recommend them and will be using them again.

Heartstyles have worked with Penntech for 3 years. The initial brief to sort out our global IT requirements. Penntech have always been refreshing clear in their comms, avoiding IT gobbledygook. No job has been too small to support and they always deliver above and beyond what was required and within budget. They clearly know what they’re doing and the level of service is always outstanding

Lewis and the team at Penntech are seen very much as an extension of our business. They are professional, technically brilliant, don't over complicate things, very friendly and the staff feel comfortable dealing with them on a daily basis. They have a good understanding of our needs and go above and beyond to ensure we can get on with our day to day business, safe in the knowledge that if anything goes wrong technically that Penntech will resolve it efficiently.

The Penntech team's 'can do' approach is something that we have come to rely on. During their first year of engagement, the Penntech team identified IT redundancies and inefficiencies, which resulted in cost-savings equal to, if not more than their annual fee. Lewis and his team are cost-conscious, profoundly knowledgeable and can understand and communicate at all levels of our organisation. I would highly recommend Penntech IT Solutions for IT support.
