Re: Speech to. Text for iPhones

 

Question: I know on InnoCaption and Olelo you can "keep" your real cell phone number -- you don't need to use a unique cellphone number for callers. Does CaptionMate allow the same perk?

What about CaptionMate?

You see both sides of the conversation.
I get an email alerting me that I have a voicemail on CaptionMate. (You can turn this setting on or off). 

I can’t share the conversation either. But InnoCaption allows forwarding of the the transcript (although its only the caller).

1) It does not alert you when you have voicemail (they are working on that...) so you have to check your voicemail on a regular basis.
2) Also I have to do a "workaround" to share the conversation as they don't have that icon to share it. Olelo does provide a transcript showing both sides of the conversation. My workaround is to video record the transcript as I scroll down it--I use "Screenshot" on the Mac to do this. 

But for the moment I am going to stick with olelo as its main advantage is so important to me....especially on important calls like financial, etc.

I have those captions set up - and they work quite well.
Well worth setting up.

RE: Computer --  Captions on Chrome
There are now captions if you use the Chrome Browser. Here is how you set that up. This worked for me and it is really easy. I credit Jaynie Kind for bringing it to my attention. Here is her information:

Hi Everyone,
An article was shared on ALDA’s Facebook page so I played the 25-second video on how to turn on captioning for audio and video files. The link is at the very bottom of this email. In a nutshell, here’s how I turned it on, selecting each as listed. (FYI: I use an iMac, I would expect this should be the same in Windows.)

Google Chrome
Preferences
Settings
Advanced
Accessibility
Live Caption (turn on) and you’ll see it load files

Whatever you want to have transcribed needs to be within Google Chrome’s browser. (I have an iMac and use Safari, so I copied a podcast to Google Chrome and played it.)

It worked great!

Re: Speech to. Text for iPhones

 

For mobile phone calls I recommend InnoCaption.

For person-to-person speech, seeHear seems to be the most accurate and doesn’t require an internet connection. But the type size is too big, and I haven’t found a way to make it smaller.

When Zoom finally provided free captioning the quality was the best I had seen so far. Rev was originally useless, but it had improved. GoogleMeet wasn’t much better than Rev. But it has been a year of improvement for ASR. 

The Zoom instructions were so bad that when I told people the free captions were now available, most of them were unable to install them. But someone then posted the attached instructions and all my groups started turning on captions. At first I had to keep reminding them, but before long it became habit.

I haven’t yet attended a hybrid meeting, but my various groups are working on it.

Before Zoom had captions I subscribed to Otter and propped it up under my computer. It was helpful only rarely. The best thing about Zoom is that the captions can be moved so I can place them right under each speaker’s mouth.

During this time I have also been trying to use captions on my iPhone, so I can use it when speakers are masked. Most of them would not work without wifi, and few places I went had wifi. Just a few days ago I downloaded eyeHear, which is the most accurate and works without wifi. But I can’t figure out if it’s possible to reduce the size of the type. It is so huge that only a few words are visible at a time.

As for the Boston chapter, we used Zoom with captions. A member worked in a school and used their account. When they dropped the account, we bought a year’s subscription.

I would like to learn the results of your research.
