Now you can use automated transcription service Otter.ai to transcribe and supply closed captions for Google Meet calls with the assistance of a brand new Chrome extension. Conferences might be transcribed in actual time, and transcripts might be saved proper to your Otter account so you possibly can entry and share them later.
Otter.ai says the extension works with all of its plans, that means even free customers will be capable of reap the benefits of the instrument.
To set it up, first obtain the Otter.ai Chrome extension here. When you’ve put in it, head over to meet.google.com after which click on on the Otter extension. (You may must click on the puzzle piece icon to open the extensions menu to search out it.) Then, you could be prompted to log in to make use of the extension, although I used to be already logged in after I examined it. From there, log into your assembly, faucet the “report” button from the Otter extension, and you must see the transcription begin to fill out in actual time.
You too can activate closed captions by clicking the button with “cc” surrounded by a field within the Otter window. However Google Meet already affords a closed captions function, which you’ll activate by clicking an analogous icon within the menu on the backside of a Meet window, so selecting which to make use of might be a matter of private desire.
Otter.ai doesn’t simply do stay transcriptions of Google Meet calls; the service additionally integrates directly with Zoom. However to make use of Otter’s built-in stay transcriptions in Zoom, you’ll have to be on a paid Otter and Zoom plan, not like with Google Meet.
