Many of us are remote workers for the time being, and phone/video remains an important tool for daily work communication. Video conferencing has become a key component of people's daily workflow. Otter integrates with Zoom, making it a breeze to transcribe meetings and enabling real-time transcriptions and captioning in Zoom for meeting participants. If the meeting host is not using Zoom, it's as easy as 1-2-3!
Step 1: Join an online meeting, webinar, or event
Whether you're using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Skype, or Cisco Webex, join the meeting as you normally would on your computer.
Note: Be sure to play the audio through your computer speakers, turn up the volume, and do not use a headset.
Step 2: Begin transcribing using Otter
When using the Otter mobile app, place your device next to your computer's speaker, and refrain from moving or touching the device to avoid any unnecessary background noise that can affect the transcription accuracy.
Step 3: Split your screen
When using Otter on a web browser, split your screen to create a side-by-side view of the Otter transcript and video meeting. Resize either side by dragging the divider left or right.
