    Welcome to iMore! As @nikkisharif said, you can't turn it off. It's pretty non intrusive though, in my opinion.

    Following. I HATE the voicemail transcription. It jams up my entire voicemail screen making it hard to move on to the next voicemail....and I get a lot of voicemail. There's got to be a way to turn this off.

    I too need to turn this feature off! Since this addition, I have to hit the voice mail 3 or 4 times to get it to open it, then after I read it and it's never correct, I have to hit the delete multiple times before it is removed and there is no clear way to close it and move onto the next voicemail. This is NOT a feature, it is a HINDERANCE!

    Since the release of IOS 10 the horrible feature of voicemail transcription has made the use of my visual voicemail nearly impossible and very dangerous. Most of the time I find myself trying to click empty place holders or dealing with interface glitches that move voicemails to different areas of the screen. Sometimes I have to hit delete multiple times before it registers and nearly all of the transcribing is so far off from what someone actually says I find myself wondering if the transcribing service is being filtered in a different language. Please for the love of Christ at least give us the capability to turn this horrible feature OFF. As a business owner this is the WORST feature of any IOS ever...next to replacing the handgun emoji with a green squirt gun.

    After WEEKS of dealing with voicemail transcription issues there is only ONE workaround so far that I can get to trick transcribing into not functioning.

    1. Go into phone settings
    2. Go to Siri
    3. Change Siri language to Japanese or some other language that doesn't sound like English

    After doing this, voicemail transcription will not be able to transcribe your voicemails. Instead it will just say "Transcription Unavailable". At least this way the already clunky visual voicemail doesn't have to work overtime trying to transcribe messages. I hope this helps.

    What device do you have? I have a 6s Plus & 7 Plus...no issues on either with transcription
