Microsoft on Tuesday announced that the tech giant is introducing new capabilities to OneDrive over the next few weeks and months. One of the most interesting features that Microsoft announced was the native audio and video transcription support. What this means is that the cloud storage service will automatically transcribe the audio and video files that the user uploads.
However, the audio and video transcription capability is limited to the OneDrive for Business. In order to power this automated transcription capability, Microsoft is using the same AI that’s used in Microsoft Stream, which is a video-sharing service for corporate customers.
Whenever a viewer views a video or listens to an audio, a full transcript of the file will be shown in the OneDrive viewer. The viewer supports more that 320 different file types. This feature will also help users search for media based on the content that’s within them.
There is no official launch date for the functionality to be available in OneDrive for Business. We are also not sure if Microsoft will bring this functionality to all OneDrive users.
