Recording and Transcribing your meetings – Otter.ai (referral link: https://otter.ai/referrals/REN1JU27)
When I meet with clients, I like to have a pen in hand to jot down a couple of key points. At the same time, I don’t want to spend the meeting staring at a sheet of paper, frantically scribbling the important details being discussed. With Otter.ai I never worry about forgetting meeting details. It records and transcribes my meetings, so I can give my whole focus to my customer. When the meeting is over, I stop recording and export the note as an email attachment. Later, I playback the recording as I review the transcription, confirming the details of the discussion.
The free version of the application allows you to record 600 minutes of content each month. If you would like greater recording time, the paid version extends the limit to 6,000 minutes monthly.
All versions include robust features:
– Adjustable playback speeds
– Real-time transcription
– Summary of keywords and word cloud generator
– Group sharing
– Sync Zoom cloud recordings.
