  • File Test-Transcribing.ps1 — part of check-in [c666376488] at 2018-06-10 12:57:50 on branch trunk — Start-Transcript and Stop-Transcript will start and stop a file-based transcription log. However, there is no way to tell (afaik) if the current host is actually transcribing. Test-Transcribing will return $true if we are transcribing, $false if not. (user: Oisin Grehan size: 1081)
