Fantastic app

Fabulous application. It is fast, faster than Google’s live transcribe app. But maybe because there are fewer users? Translation is very good. At least on part with Live Transcribe which I use as benchmark. I have compared numerous transcribe app and as such checking critically. I am using the iPhone 13 and the mic is super sensitive so group transcribe picks up a lot of speech. Even from a couple of yards away easily. Hoping for bigger fonts and landscape mode also and possible option for white text on black background. Thank you Microsoft!

Just started experimenting

So far I’m very impressed with this app. It was “cool” that I mirrored my “conversation” on to a large display. Just had trouble with the small font on the screen. I actually tested this app with the PGA Championship (Sep 4). Which means this could be used for movies or any broadcast that doesn’t have Closed Caption. So I’m slowly thinking of ways this app would help with my father in laws degrading hearing. Thanks for your work and providing it for free to the rest of us.

Great App

Great app but needs a pause/resume meeting feature button when a meeting takes a small break without having to end the session and start a new one.
