Live (jargon) transcription in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams now has a live meeting transcription feature, launching first for US-English-speaking users. Microsoft’s implementation here is quite impressive: beyond the basics like speaker attribution and saving the transcript for access after the meeting, the feature “uses a meeting’s invitation, participant names, attachments, etc. to improve the accuracy and recognize meeting-specific jargon for each transcript automatically.” Really cool! This also all happens live during the meeting, and the data isn’t saved on Microsoft’s servers after the meeting ends.
