Yes! There are two ways that you can use Vowel remotely:
- One user can have Vowel open in addition to any conferencing system they are already using, and record the audio coming out of their computer speakers (i.e. just like putting a smartphone next to a speaker phone). There is no magic here, it will record exactly what the user hears.
- You can actually have an entire remote conversation directly in Vowel! If two or more users join a Vowel meeting and select different locations, Vowel will automatically initiate a video conference between these users. This is highly recommended, as Vowel will be able to collect high-quality audio from all users, which will be great for listening later and powering transcription and search.
Coming soon: Vowel users will be able to dial-in to pre-existing conference calls. Eventually, you will be able to use Vowel to participate in the conversation just like if you were dialing in using a phone, and you’ll get to capture all the audio and transcription as well!
