What Is This Feature?
Speaker tags help you quickly identify who was speaking at a particular moment during your meeting, making it easier to navigate and find moments of the meeting based on who was speaking, and provide better context as you’re reading through meeting highlights.
The Speaker tab on the Playback page also provides insights into relative speaker talk time, and allows you to jump to moments when a particular speaker was talking.
How To Use It:
View and tag speaker tags from any past meeting page in the Voicea platform. Speaker tags will appear above the transcript snippet on the Highlights and Playback tabs of any past meeting page.
When you first open a past meeting, you will see unconfirmed speaker tags with a grey icon - Voicea will take a first pass at automatically detecting speakers based on attendees of meeting and previous labels that users have tagged. To confirm or update a speaker tag, simply click on the icon or email above any snippet in the transcript. Meeting attendees will appear in the dropdown for you to choose from, or you can type in a speaker’s email. Once you confirm a speaker tag a green check box will appear.
Over time Voicea will learn to recognize speakers you tag from your meetings. The more snippets you tag, the more accurately Voicea will learn to identify those speakers in future meetings.
Once you’ve tagged a few snippets for each speaker, press “Auto-Tag Speakers” (from the Playback tab) and Voice will re-run the meeting and apply speaker tags to your entire meeting. If you find a speaker is mislabeled, simply edit the tag and you can re-run auto-tagging to update speaker tags.
How it Works:
Speaker tagging is not a biometric capability. Speaker Tags are a non-unique but helpful way of organizing a transcript. What do we mean by non-unique? Imagine a fingerprint that was shared by 30MM other Americans, would you consider that to be a biometric identifier? Clearly not. Speaker tags are not used to identify a unique person in a large population, rather they help you distinguish between a small number of voices in a meeting so that you can more easily partition and read the transcript.
For this reason, Voicea speaker tagging is not relevant under the Illinois law. Having said that, there are several more conservative positions we could use, should a risk mitigation strategy be decided on.
How To Leverage This Feature
Speaker tags make it easier to navigate and find moments of the meeting where specific participants were speaking, and provide better context as you’re reading through meeting highlights.
You can also gain insight into the relative talk time for each speaker, and jump to moments in the meeting where particular speakers were talking.
