1. OmmWriter, to write your articles
Thomas liked your status, Franck retweeted your last tweet, Lucie sent you an urgent email. When writing, it’s pretty difficult to remain focused for a long period of time. We’re all continuously distracted by social media notifications, emails or random phone calls. Well, not surprisingly this decreases our productivity which annoys us. But what are we doing about it? Not so much in most of the cases.
In the early days of Happy Scribe, we were facing the same issue when we had to write our thesis. We had to optimise our time to make the most of it. OmmWriter has been a game changer for us. This simple and easy to use editor is extremely minimalistic and really increases your writing productivity. In addition, you get nice ambience music while writing and a really addictive little noise when typing.
2. Happy Scribe, to transcribe your interviews
You are probably doing tons of interviews, and you know how tedious can transcribing can be. Research actually shows that it can take up to FIVE hours to transcribe a single hour of interview. This. is. insane.
Happy Scribe is a transcription tool that use voice recognition technology to transcribe interviews from speech to text within just a few minutes. You can transcribe interviews in almost any languages and accents (+119 available to date).
By using automated transcription you can save up to three hours of work when transcribing an interview. We recommend uploading high-quality audio files to ensure that the machine accurately transcribes your interview which will result in less time spend proof-reading it. (in the future add a link to the article on how to record high-quality audio file)
