I suggest you ...

Add an option for MS Stream to export the transcript to Word/Excel

I would like to have the option to export the Microsoft Stream video transcript to other filetypes (with appropriate formatting), such as Word or Excel. Perhaps the Word export would be a running paragraph of text with no timestamps, whereas the Excel export could be two columns. In column A, we could have the timestamp; in column B, we would have the text of that phrase.

This, and any other exports, would be greatly helpful!

    Essential, if you're going to transcribe meetings - otherwise, why bother? Please make downloadable. I just convinced my team to use Teams/Stream for hosting meetings, thanks to transcription, so it's disappointing to find out this flexibility does not exist - yet. Please fix that, Microsoft!!!! Thanks.

    I found that I couldn't select all the transcript text. Only about 40 lines were put onto the clipboard even when I scrolled through the entire meeting selecting hundreds of lines

    It's much easier to clean up the transcript if you can put it into a single document and use search and replace etc to fix issues. Line by line does not work.

    Yes, I conduct a daily meeting with my assistant and would like her to copy and paste highlights of the conversation into my journal.

    We have a compliance archiving requirement to export Stream video transcripts to an .EML format so we can send them via SMTP to an archiving solution. This would allow us to enable recording/audio in Teams for a large subset of users who are highly regulated - think financial services.

    I haven't been able to select all the text in the transcript window because it dynamically loads. I was able to write a bit of JS that gets me what I want, but this will only work until the MS Stream UI changes:

    `window.angular.element(window.document.querySelectorAll('.transcript-list')).scope().$ctrl.transcriptLines.map((t) => { return t.eventData.text; })`

    It's not ideal but i was able to select all the text in the transcript window and copy it. It came out like this:

    00:35
    You select the square sample content.
    00:39
    After selecting it we click the references tab.

    etc.

    I fully vote for this request. Here's a quick usecase: I am a manager who has uploaded a video where a couple of people are talking over a subject. I want my team to document this video in words by referring to this video. At this point, they would require the transcript of the video which would be very usefl.
