Today we launched Speak V2.6! This is a huge update for us that we’ve been working on for quite some time.

Here are a few things I’d love to highlight:

Text Game Strong

The text module is now live! Text analysis will be coming soon along with some incredible contextual technology to help you write and create. The text module is part of the main Speak platform which means you can access it for free! What type of analytics would you like to see in your text? We’d love to hear what you think!

Convert to Text

Instantly turn your transcription into text directly within our software for further editing, analysis, and sharing.

This a vision we’ve had for a long time. We’ve always aimed to go beyond transcription to help users deal with multiple mediums within one intuitive platform. We believe this feature and the new text editor are huge pieces in that puzzle.

Wordcloud & Frequency

We have separated the word clouds out into keywords, topics, brands, and labels. Above I shared the results from the last month in my personal account. I had some amazing days documenting audio notes and then analyzing them after in preparation to get these insights. For me, the system has become a powerful tool for deep work. We can’t wait to hear some of the insights you get from your own notes!

Additionally, you can now hover over the word cloud items to see exactly how many times they were mentioned or appeared. This opens up so many possibilities for displaying the data in different valuable forms.

As we’ve added the ability to visualize our data we’ve had some super interesting insights. The question becomes: how can we make this information even more valuable? If you had a month of recorded notes and conversations, what would you want to know? Our team has been brainstorming and getting some amazing ideas from people. Here are a few of them:

  •  Words you started saying or stopped saying
  • Your most positive and negative words/phrases/sentences
  • The brands/people/locations you mentioned
  • Words/people/places connected with positive or negative sentiment
  • Commonly used words with synonyms to improve vocabulary
  • Your most positive and negative days/weeks/times of day
  • A list of the questions you asked
  • Your average speaking pace
  • How many words you spoke and wrote
  • How many minutes of audio and video you captured and analyzed
  • A comparison with the previous month/month of the previous year
  • Highlights based on customized trigger words/phrases

There are so many possibilities! If you have any thoughts on this, we’d absolutely love to hear.

Summary

If you are in an audio or video note all you have to do is hit “Action” and “Summary” and you will get a summary of the audio or video. We believe this is an awesome way to get a quick snapshot of your audio and video content. Text summarization will be coming soon!

Sentiment Analysis

Upload video or audio and instantly filter through the transcript by the most positive or negative sentences. This has been an absolute joy to use. We have some models doing audio/visual analysis but they are still a bit rudimentary. This video specifically shows the text analysis from the transcription! As the audio and visuals models improve we’ll add them in this interface which will be really exciting. You will also see this populate in the dashboard soon so you can see the most positive and negative moments across all notes in different time periods!

We have also added an intuitive chart to help you navigate through!

Feedback

We’ve added a little feedback mechanism to train our system in several areas! If you find the sentiment analysis and summary accurate let us know! We’ll be adding ways to provide feedback throughout the entire application and just want to keep making the platform better for you.

Website update

This is not part of the official launch but we put some work into updating our website this week! To be frank, it was extremely slow. It also had a lot of content that wasn’t necessarily organized in the best way. We hope with the work we’ve done you find the website a quicker and more enjoyable experience.

Thank you as always for following our journey! If you’re interested in using the platform sign up today here! ♥
