@lindleys and @joyces, not separating the speaker is a drawback to using speech to text. CART (real person doing the transcriptions) will not have that problem. When I have a remote meeting, usually by using Zoom, I delegate who speaks so I will say their name before the person speaks. The name shows up in the transcript. Also, before someone speaks, we remind them to say their name first. It's a duplication of the persons name, but it prevents the problem you describe. Some meeting platforms know who is speaking and will automatically insert that into the transcript.

Not identifying speakers isn't an issue of speech-to-text software, but rather an issue with the Live Transcribe app. I think that in the printed transcript Otter separates speakers (but not during the actual conversation), and I know that http://www.Streamer.center identifies speakers both during the actual conversation and in the printed transcript. During the live conversation it also pops up a picture of the person that is talking at that moment.
