I haven’t found that functionality in Zoom itself but I use Otter.ai which integrates into Zoom. There is a free Otter.ai account that gives you 600 minutes a month. I just signed up for the paid Otter for Teams as it gives participants a button in Zoom where they can view a transcript and highlight parts of it then isolate the parts they highlighted…so they can in effect use it for some sort of note taking.

I think with the Otter for Teams you can still use the basic Otter.ai functionality and get a transcript but I haven’t tried that yet…still experimenting.

They recently changed the Otter for Teams licensing so I can now get a one user Otter for Teams and since I am the only one in my company, this is more cost effective. Participants can still access the Otter.ai Live Notes which is as I described above…but I don’t have to have more than me in the account. 😊

Cheers, Karen

Subject: [Athen] Zoom Aauto speech recognition

Hey all,

I’ve heard that there is an auto speech recognition feature in Zoom. I cannot find it. Can somebody tell me where it is? I’d like to use it to get a draft transcript for captions.
