We are at a point in technology where voice and it should be a thing and each and everything that we do. Voice transcription is been a technology that we’ve been looking at since the earliest days of Google voice. But back then, voice transcription was a joke. It was so bad that they were websites dedicated to the horrendous voice transcription that was Google voice.

We should be at a time and technology where a student in any classroom, whether it be K-12 or higher ed, can just take their smart phone out of your pocket and start transcribing a teacher or professors lecture.

A start up called Otter.ai is making voice transcription or actually ambient voice transcription a reality.

Using otters patent pending technology through their Platformer app students can simply pull the phone out of their pocket and listen to the lecture being delivered. As the teacher or professor continues with their lecture the Otter platform transcribes what that person is saying.

Notes transcribe using Otter can be quickly and easily searched. You can keep track of who speaking and who’s giving important information and data. I don’t even knows when the speaker changes from the teacher to a student.

The other platform allows you to choose groups and working collaborate with each other and small groups are large groups. Students can swap lectures no files and other materials through the Otter platform so that everybody is instantly on the same page.

Voice transcription isn’t new. However, Otter has turned voice notes into a real tool that can be used in K-12 classrooms and higher ed classrooms, everywhere.

You can try Otter.ai out for yourself at Otter.ai and find out more at ISTE 2018 in Chicago, June 24-28th, Booth #780.
