Accessibility and AI: An Unbeatable Combination
In our quest to make communication more accessible, especially for people with disabilities, we often find ourselves seeking innovative solutions. Today, we’re discussing the intersection of accessibility and artificial intelligence (AI) through a step-by-step tutorial on integrating Otter AI with GPT-4.
Harnessing the Power of Otter AI
Otter AI offers a seamless way to record and transcribe conversations, producing a detailed, accurate text record of your meetings. In this tutorial, we use an existing ten-minute conversation, but you could just as easily record a new one.
Once you’ve chosen your conversation, simply hit the ‘More Options’ button and select ‘export.’ Change the file format to ‘clipboard,’ which enables you to copy the entire transcript effortlessly.
Integrating Otter AI and GPT-4 for Effective Summarizing
The next step in using AI for accessibility is to incorporate GPT-4. After copying the transcript from Otter AI, you’ll open a notepad document containing instructions for GPT-4. In this instance, we’re asking for a summary of the meeting, a list of discussed topics, and any action items.
After pasting the transcript and your instructions into the notepad, copy all of this information, ready to input into GPT-4. If you’re using the paid GPT-4 version, simply paste this as a message and hit ‘send.’ What you’ll get in return is an insightful summary of your meeting.
Benefits of Using AI for Accessibility: A Case Study
In our tutorial, the ten-minute recording transformed into a succinct summary. The meeting, which was a tutorial session about using ABBY FineReader PDF 16 to add form fields to a PDF, yielded a comprehensive summary touching on key points such as adding different types of fields and saving the form as a searchable PDF.
Moreover, the AI successfully identified the main topics discussed in the meeting, which ranged from using ABBY FineReader PDF 16 to making the PDF accessible and achieving WCAG 2.1 compliance. No action items were present as it was a tutorial session, and the AI duly noted that.
The Impact of AI on Accessibility
The potential for using AI for accessibility, as shown in this example, is astounding. It not only assists in the swift summarization of meetings but also identifies key themes and action items. The blend of Otter AI and GPT-4 presents an efficient and effective way to improve communication accessibility.
