Microsoft announces new Transcribe and Ink experience in OneNote on Windows

Microsoft OneNote transcription Inking

Microsoft today announced a new Transcribe and Ink experience in OneNote on Windows. Instead of taking notes of everything during a lecture or meeting, you can now concentrate on listening and use OneNote to record the audio for listening back and transcription. Once you are ready to review your transcription, you can press the Play button to play back the ink strokes that were captured along with the audio recording. Also, your ink strokes captured during the recording will be played back to you in sync with the audio.

Here’s how the feature works:

Here’s how to start:

  1. If it’s your first time transcribing, give the OneNote app permission to use your mic.
  2.  Go to Home > Record & Transcribe > Transcribe.
  3. In the Transcribe pane, select the Start recording button.
  4. Start talking or begin a conversation with another person, or start recording a lecture. Be sure to speak clearly or make sure the incoming audio is clear.
  5. As you speak or listen, you can take notes using ink.
  6. When finished, click the Save and transcribe now button to save your recording to OneDrive and start the transcription process.

You can also upload a pre-recorded audio file to transcribe the recording. To do that, follow the below steps:

  1. Go to Home > Record & Transcribe > Transcribe.
  2. In the Transcribe pane, select the Upload audio button.
  3. Choose an existing audio file from the file picker, and then click the Open button.

This feature supports the .wav, .mp4, .m4a, and .mp3 formats. This feature will be available for Microsoft 365 subscribers. Microsoft will be rolling this feature out to Insiders running Version  2211 (Build 15729.20002) or later.
