How to create a transcript

You can use a Zoom plug-in offered by Perigean to generate transcripts of your recorded sessions. You’ll need to enable this before each session to ensure that you get the transcripts to supplement notes taken by your notetaker.

Before you begin

Log in to Perigean’s Zoom meeting so you are the host. Follow the steps below before each session begins to create a transcript of the recorded session.

Step-by-step guide

Step 1: Start transcripts

In the bottom toolbar of the Zoom window, click the MORE arrow next to the SHOW CAPTIONS button.

Start transcripts by clicking View Full Transcript.

Step 2: Select a language

  1. Select the language meeting participants will use in this session.

Select the language you’d like your transcripts to be in.

Step 3: Close the transcript panel

To limit distractions during the sessions, you’ll probably want to close the TRANSCRIPT panel. To do this, click on CLOSE FULL TRANSCRIPT in the SHOW CAPTIONS menu.

Close the transcripts panel by clicking CLOSE FULL TRANSCRIPT.

Step 4: Save the transcript

When the session is done, you can save the transcripts locally by opening the TRANSCRIPT panel again and clicking the SAVE TRANSCRIPTS button at the bottom of the panel. You’ll also have access to this transcript where you access your recordings.

Click the SAVE TRANSCRIPT button to download the file to your local hard drive.

Step 5: Share with your notetaker

Once you’ve saved the transcripts to your local hard drive, you’ll want to share them with your notetaker so they can fill in any gaps in their notes.
