I have a lot of conference calls on both Microsoft Teams and Gotomeeting. I have a Macbook Pro. Most of my conference calls are with folks in India and the Philippines who have strong accents.
For the Teams meetings I call in on my iPhone using Teams (which pipes sound to my Resound Enzos) and then also bring up the Teams meeting on my Mac so I have a larger screen to see the charts. Then, I turn on captions in the Teams meeting. It’s a bit cumbersome but it works and MS live captioning is pretty darn good. I think I can probably avoid the iPhone call-in if I can pipe the desktop audio to the Resound all-mic clip but haven’t tried that yet. (Macbook bluetooth won’t connect directly to Resound hearing aids. Thanks, Apple.)
For the Gotomeeting conference calls I haven’t found any way to get LIVE captions like MS Teams. There are third party services my company would have to pay for and they seem cumbersome. Has anyone solved this problem? Remember, my need is for live captions, not for a transcript after the call.
One idea I had was to junk my iPhone, buy a Pixel, and run Google Caption on the Pixel 4 while dialed in on Gotomeeting (I haven’t seen anything about Google Caption being able to run on a laptop browser). Then I would mirror the phone to my desktop so I could more easily read the captions. I’d have the charts open on the Mac through a desktop Gotomeeting session. Would this work? I know it sounds crazy kludgy but I really like the live captioning I get in Teams and want to replicate it on Gotomeeting.
Any other ideas?
Thanks all for any and all ideas.
