Transcribe Your Recordings in Word for Web

The transcribe feature converts speech to a text transcript with each speaker individually separated. After your conversation, interview, or meeting, you can revisit parts of the recording by playing back the time stamped audio and edit the transcription to make corrections. You can save the full transcript as a Word document or insert snippets of it into existing documents.


The Transcribe tool is currently only available in Word for Web and OneNote

You can transcribe speech in two ways: 

  • Record directly in Word
  • Upload an audio file



For instructions in text format and how to:

  • Record in Word
  • Upload an audio file
  • Interact with the transcript
  • Share the transcript and recording
  • System requirements and language availability
