Voice Recognition and Transcription Software/Hardware for Meetings

I am looking for a device to transcribe meetings digitally and software that will transcribe the meetings afterwards automatically if i set ip up with a PC. Can anyone suggest anything that might be out there? I did look at Nuance Dragon, but it only recognizes single voices and there will be multiple people speaking in the meetings.

Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks

You won't get a device that auto-transcribes. You're best be is a portable audio recorder. You can then transcribe the audio on a PC later.

Automatic meeting transcriptions are still not really possible. As you noted, one of the leading voice-recognition programs is really only designed to transcribe one voice.

Here's information on a meeting transciber poject, which is still in progress:

Here's an article on meeting transcription hardware/software:

It is 2years plus since James 2025a posted for an answer to the exactly the same requirement I have. I have tried Nuance Dragon 11.5 but get gobbledy-gook for the most part. I have also tried recording on my Philips recorder, but still have to laboriously type up the Minutes of my meetings.
Hopefully, by now, some bright spark has developed a solution.

There's no software. However if you do a lot of these, there's people that actually do this kind of work. My wife uses them to transcribe all the interviews she records in her digital recorder.
