Never take notes in a meeting again

      Focus and meeting interactions – Let Webex Assistant take the notes and highlights while you focus on the discussion at hand.

      Execution and workflow – Easily assign tasks and follow-up after the meeting to make sure the project moves along.

      Accessibility – Hearing-impaired participants can read closed-captioning and receive follow-up information such as meeting notes and highlights or even a recorded transcript of the entire meeting.

Turning talk into action

Your day is full of meetings. You probably spend too much time on mundane meeting tasks—things that impede progress, like note-taking. If we could automate these common activities, it would free us up to focus on getting stuff done.

Another challenge of meetings is how to extract the most value out of them—not just during, but after the meeting. Having the highlights, transcripts, and actions items all delivered to one place means you can easily share it out and assign tasks. You can even search across all your recording transcripts to find the exact spot where something important to you was said. That’s true value.

Of even greater value: Webex Assistant for Webex Meetings offers leadership word accuracy, and we’re the only provider today with in-house data management, preserving your security. Other conferencing vendors depend on third parties for transcription, which exposes your data to additional security risks.

Key features of Webex Assistant for Webex Meetings

      Live transcription – Running captions during the meeting can be turned on or off at any point in the meeting and displayed on the right-side panel.

      Closed-captioning – Closed-captioning provides greater accessibility for hearing-impaired participants, who can choose to follow text across the lower third of the screen.

      Meeting highlights – The host and attendees can capture highlights in three ways: voice activated trigger words, selecting and highlighting text, and voice commands.

      Voice commands – Using “OK Webex” as the wake word will prompt a visual and audible response from Webex Assistant; commands include “Create an action item/task/note”; We “decided”; “Highlight” that; and “In summary”.

      Recording transcripts – Enable in-meeting recording to capture the post-meeting transcript; speaker labeling within the transcript lets you know exactly what was said by whom.

      Cross-meeting search – After the meeting, search all of your meeting transcripts with key words.

      Viewing and editing highlights – Navigate to the Webex Meetings page to view highlights and transcripts post-meeting; edit transcripts and highlights and play the associated audio.

      Sharing highlights – Participants can select multiple highlights to share via email for fast follow-up; send to all meeting participants, specific participants, or add custom emails.

Available on Webex Meetings desktop and mobile apps (iOS and Android)
