I recently learned about this new startup that’s doing text-to-speech, similar to Otter.ai, but they also handle video, and have a built-in note/document creation system as well.
It seems like they want to sort of be a central repository for all your notes, whether audio, video, or text. The kicker is they do sentiment analysis and other AI-driven parsing of the text in the system, whether from text-to-speech output, or direct writing input. It’s a really interesting idea, and while the initial implementation is a bit rough so far, there are some cool features, like the ability to create an embeddable recorder to collect audio or video from people, feeding it into the system, then doing text-to-speech and sentiment analysis, etc.
Today I got an email announcing new Evernote integration, and while I don’t use Evernote myself, as a quantified self enthusiast one thing about the integration caught my eye, highlighted in the screenshot below.
Is this possibility exciting to anyone else? Have any of you tried Speak.ai for yourself? What do you think of it, or at least what it’s trying to do? Do you see a place for this in your toolkit in the future, if it improves enough?
