At this stage of the pandemic, it is prudent to say that most of us would be happy if we no longer need to attend another call for zoom. But with COVID-19 still a continuing concern and societies such as Google moving to hybrid work weeks, it is fair to say that video meetings will probably be a coherent element of most jobs in the foreseeable future. The Otter audio transcription company believes it has a potential solution for zooming fatigue. It introduces a new software feature called Otter Assistant that will assist in zoom calls on your name and take notes for you.
The company says the tool works with all zoom meetings, even where you are not host. Once you have connected otter.ai to your Google or Microsoft Calendar, you can switch which calls you want that Otter assistant to join the application “My Agenda Interface”. It is also possible to include the software in a current call by entering the URL of the meeting in the same interface. At this point, your colleagues will see Otter attending as another participant in the procedure.
And while Otter assistant can not claim to be you, it will allow you to focus on talking to your colleagues instead of worrying about writing everything they say. You do not have to worry about missing something important if you have to get away from your computer for a moment. At a meeting or once completed, you can share the work of Otter assisting with your colleagues. Google Docs permissions allow you to decide whether your colleagues can modify or comment on transcription. You also have the option to add images and highlight text sections, as well as sending the document to people who missed the meeting. Lucky.
Otter included the functionality of its business subscription plans, which start $ 20 a month per user. It should be emphasized that zoom includes audio transcription, but also a paid feature.
