How is Speak Ai different from Otter.ai?

We enable users to import and write text notes.
You can convert a transcription to a text note directly within Speak for further editing. 
You can upload videos and still view it back in Speak. We also do video analysis to extract faces, read from the screen, and label what is happening. 
Speak has much deeper analysis. While Otter does keywords and is working on some meeting notes, we do:

– People, locations, brands and more

-Wants, needs

– Mentions of money, times

– Custom keyword and phrase identification for automatic analysis (Coming soon)

Speak has a dashboard that combines all your audio, video, and text together to build patterns and unlock novel insights. Otter looks at media very individually which we see as a huge gap.
We generate customizable landing pages that you can brand.
Our media player is more customizable with insights, branding, and better optimization for SEO.
We give access to APIs. 
Google Chrome Extension (Coming).
We also have Android and iOS apps coming.
Speak can hook up with Google Analytics.
