Daily allows developers to build in video and audio calls into their applications. Daily recently announced our partnership which brings accurate live transcriptions to video calls in just a few lines of code.

In their announcement, the team at Daily provide a super useful React.js demo and starter project. Today we're sharing a video tutorial on getting live transcription working, without a framework, in under 40 lines of code (including the HTML boilerplate).

This tutorial covers:

  1. How to set up a Daily video call using Daily Prebuilt.
  2. How to enable live transcriptions for your Daily domain.
  3. How to start transcribing your Daily video calls.
