Expert tips to enhance your experience

💡To improve the accuracy of Ava, encourage meeting participants to use Bluetooth headphones/mics

💡Position the Ava window below your video conference window so that captions can be read easily while staying engaged in the meeting (see example at the top of this page)

💡Click the blue keyboard icon on the right to type what you have to say, especially useful for non-verbal people or anyone with an accent.

💡Customize your screen and caption settings by clicking the black stacked horizontal lines icon, also known as a hamburger icon, in the top left corner.

💡Add the Ava Scribe service for 98% accurate transcripts. Using Ava Scribe means a human transcription specialist (CART) will correct the captions in real-time.
