After spending almost an entire year working from home, we’re all starting to get a little burnt out. It was once enjoyable to dress up only the top halves of our bodies and pretend to wear real trousers as we chatted eagerly with our colleagues over Zoom. Now it’s tough to even focus on what each meeting is about — especially if you’re trying to take notes at the same time.
Unprecedented times call for new apps and inventions, though, and CaptionSaver Pro is one of our favourites. A Chrome extension for all the remote workers out there, CaptionSaver creates live caption transcripts from Google Meet video calls and presentations and automatically saves them to your Drive. So, not only can you follow along easier during your live meetings, but you’ll also be able to go back and reread the transcripts later on for a refresher.
Once you download the extension, you’ll simply join any meeting as you normally would. CaptionSaver will turn on captions for you once you join, so you don’t have to click anything. As your meeting progresses, the app will save the caption transcript automatically. So, when you’re finished, you’ll have a complete copy of everything that happened waiting for you in Google Drive. You can also download your transcript to a text file if you wish. The Pro version comes with features like highlighting and timestamps as well, so you can enhance your note-taking capabilities and focus all your attention on your meetings.
The basic Chrome extension is free, but if you want the additional features for convenience, you’ll have to go pro. No worries though, as for a limited time, you can snag a lifetime subscription for only£18.10.
