You can now record voice notes in Office Mobile and transcribe them in real time, right from your iOS device. To do this, tap the + button at the bottom of the navigation bar, select Voice in the Quick Capture pop-up menu, and tap the microphone icon to start a new recording. Office also generates an automated transcription of your recording, which can be reviewed by tapping on the voice card on the Home tab.
