Otter for Zoom (and other programs)
Have you heard of Otter?
No, not the cute furry animals. We all know them. The Otter in this blog is an interesting tool that you really should know about.
Otter is a speech-to-text tool that lets you transcribe and record audio conversations in text form. It is available on android, iOS, and desktop, and the program syncs seamlessly across devices thanks to cloud processing.
The Otter software can be used with Zoom and other meetings software to record and save conversations, and you can easily browse through the conversations later using keywords or the search feature.
What I like is that Otter has a free plan that offers 600 minutes of audio recording per month, which can be played back, searched, and exported. This is usually enough for the home business entrepreneur (obviously, larger firms need more recording time to record their meetings, etc.) You can also opt for the premium subscription that costs $9.99 per month (or $8.33 per month if you pay annually). This allows you to transcribe up to 6000 minutes every month.
The program has a user-friendly and well-designed interface, and everything is neatly organized to make it easy to use. On the main screen, you have the record and import buttons, along with a tab for recent activity. It will record audio and transcribe it to text in real-time, and it even differentiates speakers in a conversation.
Otter is an excellent transcribing tool, and it offers multiple features that make it stand out amongst the competition. It has a fantastic interface, and it accurately transcribes your audio conversations in real-time, which makes it the perfect tool to keep a record of important meetings.
Check out this neat (and rather cute) program to see the benefits.
