Solutions: Live Transcribe reset and Zoom captions
I know there were a lot of discussions about and dissatisfaction with Live Transcribe. I have found in the last several months that this app does give the “App Off-line “ message even though I am signed into whatever network is available. Today, at the doctors office everything was fine in the check in and waiting room until I got inside the office . Then it went offline. I have found that by simply turning wi fi off and then on again it seems to reset and then I am back online. This has happened several times when it never use to happen before. For me, this is a fix and might be for someone else. Remember how we used to unplug an appliance and plug it back in and then it worked again?
Goggle says it does not store any conversations on its servers. There was a concern from someone about sending data to advertisers.
Another thing I don’t do is turn on Accessibility because of the floating microphone which just gets in the way. It does not affect anything I do with this app . I am still using the same Samsung S7 .
I have “attended” zoom meetings and placed my phone upright near my iPad and am able to capture almost every word that is spoken as long as the speaker Is using a microphone.
I don’t know if this Samsung has the most powerful mic of all the newer models but I am still amazed at the sound quality and will continue use to use this older version until the phone goes kaput.
Healthy hearing to all
