We're not finding the transcripts to be useful or helpful in anyway. They are of such low quality, the entirety of the transcript would need to be edited if we wanted to keep it and not detract from the video from how unprofessional it makes the video look. That would not be a very good use of time for all videos across an organization. We're finding the only option (and also provided by MS help staff) is for viewers to have to "Hide transcripts" when they click on a video.

 

It would be good if we can just disable the transcripts on all videos via an admin control across an organization instead of having to recommend users individually to "Hide transcript."

I am having the same issue, the entire transcript would need to be edited, just want to turn them off; if not for the entire organization, for the one that is really wacky.

Hi, You can hide the transcript for a specific video by clicking on the Settings (gear icon) underneath the video and choosing Hide transcript option.

 

@Janet Bailey @Justin Havens We had an update released early this year in transcript generation to improve transcription accuracy. This update would apply to transcripts generated for newer videos (post ~mid-Jan). Have you seen continued levels of quality issues in transcript for recent videos as in the past?

 

Thanks,

Hi Asmita

I would much rather be able to turn them off organisation-wide then have them by default. Is this possible?

 

Thanks,

Has there been any activity on this point?  Our legal department would very much like to see transcription disabled across the organization by default as Joel mentioned.

We also have had to send out a company wide communication to all users to turn off transcription on each individual video and have the transcription previewed by another user before posting. This directive came from our legal department because of inappropriate transcription that was offensive.

The Transripts by default is a very dumb idea, they are not correct, and should be EASY to turn off both per video and per organization
