Freshcaller's call transcription feature is similar to the "speech to text" feature, which converts your call recordings to readable text. 

Listening to call recordings can sometimes be time-consuming, especially when you want to know what exactly the call was regarding. However, call transcripts allow you to read and understand the context of a call easily. 

For example, as an admin or a supervisor, if you want to evaluate an agent's performance or analyze customer requirements, you can quickly read the call transcripts.

How does call transcription work?

If call recording and call transcription options are enabled for a number in your account, both your incoming and outgoing calls from that number will be converted to transcriptions. 

Once a call is completed, the recorded conversation is converted to readable text. You can then view the transcripts in the Call Metrics section.

Note: Call transcription works only if call recording is enabled for a number. Also, currently this is supported only in English.

User Requirements: To enable call transcriptions, you must have admin or account admin access.

Currently, this feature is enabled only on request for Forest customers. To add this feature to your account, contact
