Transcripts are currently only available on the recorded playback of the meeting.  Automatic live captioning is not currently available.

Meetings MUST be Recorded in the Cloud for the automatic transcription to work. This feature will not work with meetings recorded to your computer.


Webex Meetings or Events that are recorded will automatically have a transcript created.  This transcript will be synced to the recorded meeting and act as closed captioning.  No special settings are required to activate this feature.  It is enabled by default for all Webex meetings.  All you have to do is record the meeting in the cloud, and wait for the transcript to be generated!  It usually takes about two to three times the total length of the recording for the transcript to be completed.

Below is an example of how the playback of the recorded meeting appears.  This example can also be viewed live at: https://uww.webex.com/webappng/sites/uww/recording/play/2bdf67743b5743cbbf5c91ea59c86bdd
