As a person with ADHD I struggle with short term memory. And also sometimes feel overwhelmed at meetings, trying to process information, extract conclusions and next steps, keep notes and communicate back. It is especially difficult to keep notes when facilitating. I love having Otter Ai as a back up for my "memory". I turn it on whenever I feel like I'm not keeping up and it allows me to focus on the present and relax about keeping perfectly captured notes. I can always go back and review!

This app saves me so much time previously spent transcribing recorded meetings. I am impressed by the accuracy. Even when the speakers have heavy accents, Otter nearly always gets it right. I especially like that Otter makes a recording in addition to a transcript, so it is easy to check on any questionable passages or words. I subscribed for the upgraded plan because the free plan does not offer adequate monthly minutes for my needs.

I've been using this service since mid 2018. I understood it's limitations then, but not so much now. I'm paying for the yearly pro plan, which is basically a voice recorder. The live transcription is abysmal, with 25% -30% inaccuracy rate. When it substitutes it's "guessed" words, it renders the transcription almost useless. I followed all instructions and guidelines while using the service/app. Support was contacted but couldn't provide any solutions.
