Otter AI

For students who have certain limitations connected to their disability, taking notes in class is a challenge. Many services and products have been on the market for years to help these students. After much investigation our department has partnered with Otter.AI, an app that is accessible, powerful, and easy for students to pick up and use in a variety of classes.

If you are a student who has this accommodation, or you are interested in learning about this
application for your own use , please use the link below to schedule a training session with one of our team members, we will be happy to teach you about this great tool.

A Bit about the App:

Otter.ai is a voice meeting recording application powered by data and machine learning technology. With this application, you can use your phone, computer, tablet or other device to not only record classes but also generate full transcripts that can be printed or integrated into your own notes. The real power comes from the machine learning algorithm that allows you to search, highlight, crop, or target any aspect of your class lectures for the information you need. The features of this tool are vast, and we can help you learn how to discover and use the varied features to access your courses more effectively.
