After four years... I finally broke down...and got an Otter Premium account. I hope you're happy Otter...

As a dyslexic working in the media can I just advocate that otter.ai is an absolute godsend. It writes out my interview instantly (that I can change if it picks up anything incorrectly). It has saved me hours of work.

Taking minutes in meetings as a deaf person is utterly exhausting- knowing what to write, the typing, the listening over the typing noise, trying to figure out who’s saying what, the delay in auditory processing. I would genuinely be lost without my @otter_ai app.

I used to spend hours transcribing my sample answers for my students, since I found Otter I've probably saved hundreds of hours. One happy teacher!

“It's kind of like a no-brainer to try Otter –– the free tier is incredibly compelling. Then the next tier up, you get so much more at that price point compared to a lot of the other options out there."

“I just started using Otter to transcribe my presentations as well. I can’t do stream-of-consciousness writing well and I’ve struggled in the past when working on user experience case studies or preparing presentations for a client.”
