Most meetings take place online as text to start with, so obviously
there is no need for transcription there, but AGMs are done in real
life. I wouldn't mind having a transcription of our AGMs (at least the
important parts of them). The main advantages of transcriptions over
raw audio files is that they can be skimmed and searched, audio files
can't. I find that very useful.
