It's important to understand how this works. When you start running the transcribe clock, Microsoft's "online speech recognition and translation technology" receives this information, so that the magic can happen. To protect your privacy, Microsoft attaches a random identifier to your information, so it doesn't exactly link it to you, John Doe.
Key information isn't saved either (just in case you're out there discussing your passwords or credit card information with anyone and choosing to transcribe that info for some reason). They don't save meeting transcripts or recordings either— it's all stored on your device (and deleted if you ever delete the app).
There's one more cool feature though: Group Transcribe translates speech in real time. So not only can you set this app up on your phone in your own language, but it supports 80+ languages in general. To make things exciting, let's go back to our Prithvi & John conversation.
Say I have my Group Transcribe app set up in Spanish (because I don't speak English) and John Doe has his app set up in English (because he doesn't speak Spanish). How are we supposed to talk to each other?
If and when we connect to a digital room in Group Transcribe, we can speak in our native language and the app provides translations in real time. So even though John, who is in front of me, will hear me speak in Spanish, his Group Transcribe app will instantly translate my speech to English. Just imagine how convenient this is going to be once you all get to travel to different countries once again.
