I love everything about Otter -- it's simple, fast, and works great.

I loved using otter and definitely want to continue using it in the future! It is so helpful to have something to go back to and to record and transcribe in the moment

Otter has been extremely helpful to our team as we're trying to interview new candidates. It allows us to focus more on the conversation and less on "note taking". We still jot down highlights, but having Otter as a backup has been wonderful.

Not only does this tool support those who need accessibility support for class and meetings, but it also helps students keep track of discussion/lecture/meeting notes without having to miss any important and relevant content. Thank you so much for providing Otter Voice Notes as an option at UVa - it is a life-changer!
