Post Transcription & Summary - iOS

This guide will walk you through the necessary steps to enable post-transcription functionality in your application, allowing users to access transcriptions of recorded meetings.

Moreover, VideoSDK offers flexibility in configuring post-time transcription, allowing you to set up webhooks for this purpose.


Please ensure eligibility prior to enabling post-transcription. For further details, please contact us.

Integrating Post Transcription Feature

alt text

In the image above, the recording begins with transcription and summary features turned on. This triggers a webhook call for the start of recording. When the recording stops, another webhook is activated. After the recording, our transcriber starts transcribing, which in turn activates a webhook. Once the transcription is finished, it's sent to the summarizer for summary generation, and then another webhook is triggered.

Step 1: Configure Post Transcription & Summary

  • In this step, we set up the configuration for post transcription and summary generation. We define the webhook URL where the webhooks will be received.
// Webhook URL where, webhooks are received
let webhookUrl = "";

// Post Transcription Configuration
let transcription: PostTranscriptionConfig = PostTranscriptionConfig(
enabled: true,
summary: SummaryConfig(
enabled: true,
prompt: "Write summary in sections like Title, Agenda, Speakers, Action Items, Outlines, Notes and Summary"

Step 2: Start Recording with Transcription Configuration

  • Once the configuration is set, we initiate the recording process for the meeting, incorporating the transcription configuration we defined earlier.
// Start Recording
meeting.startRecording(webhookUrl: webHookUrl,transcription: transcription);

Step 3: Stop Recording

  • When the meeting concludes or recording is no longer needed, we stop the recording process.
// Stop Recording

Step 4: Fetch Post Transcriptions

  • After the meeting recording is stopped, post transcription and summary data can be obtained using the Post Transcription API.

  • The API provides information such as the status of transcription, file paths for transcription data in various formats (JSON, SRT, TXT, TSV, VTT), and a summarized text file.

  • The transcription document is structured as follows:

"id": "40b0a4ed-9842-40c9-a288-e4b1bf98a90a",
"status": "completed",
"roomId": "abc-xyzw-lmno",
"sessionId": "621497578bea0d0404c35c4c",
"recordingId": "65d303d6d2c373dfd71b38a2",
"filePath": "",
"transcriptionFilePaths": {
"json": "",
"srt": "",
"txt": "",
"tsv": "",
"vtt": ""
"summarizedFilePaths": {
"txt": ""
"userStorage": null,
"start": "2024-02-27T16:00:36.828Z",
"end": "2024-02-27T16:01:46.939Z"

Please be aware that there may be a delay in processing the transcription data after the recording has been stopped. This delay could vary depending on factors such as server load and the duration of the meeting.
