Using Microsoft Word to Automatically Transcribe Audio Files

I’ve been conducting interviews in my research for a very long time. And during that time the most laborious part of interviewing has always been transcribing. So, needless to say I was very excited when I discovered that Microsoft Word has a new function to automatically transcribe audio files!

All you need is an premium Microsoft Office365 account – it only works with the online version of Microsoft Word. Check out this short video which talks through how to use the feature.

I’ve already tested the feature and I was really impressed by how quickly the transcription took. Most importantly, I found that it was very accurate.

Have you tried this feature yet and did you find it to be accurate? I’d be really interested to hear your views.
