speech-to-text app

Has anyone tried a speech-to-text app? I have downloaded 3 of them and they all have a "wrong word" issue. Bill

@sag I just got done evaluating Streamer for Zoom for my HLAA Chapter meetings. Streamer's captioning works well. But the one big drawback to using it is that everyone who wants to access it on your call with you must download Google Chrome browser in order to access the microphone. With many older, non-techie people in our group that was thumbs down for it. Maybe if we can spend the next several months educating our members on how to download and use Chrome we might come bask to it.

Yep, you can view the captioning using any browser, but if you are going to use the microphone, it needs to be Chrome. The reason is that if you use a microphone with Safari or Edge, Apple and Microsoft force developers to let them record the conversation. That goes against Streamer's goal of making conversations completely private and secure.
