Transcript column

iMazing's Voicemail view includes a Transcript column. It features transcriptions of the voice messages as done by iOS. However, transcription is only available if the voice of the person leaving the voicemail is clear and in the same language as your iPhone's. Transcripts availability also depends on your carrier.

💡 Tip: Transcripts will often be too long to be displayed in iMazing, but they will be fully available if you use iMazing's export to Excel or CSV function.

Keep in mind

  • Visual Voicemail is an an optional feature which enables viewing voicemail directly on your device, without dialling a mailbox. Not all carriers support Visual Voicemail: if your voicemail does not appear on your iPhone, please check this Apple Support article.
  • If you want to transfer your voicemail to a new iPhone, you'll need to create a backup of the old phone, then restore that backup to the new iPhone.
  • Voicemail audio files are in .amr format. If you are a Windows user, you will need Apple's Quicktime or VLC to play .amr files on your computer.
