Notetaking software

Caption.Ed logo


Caption.Ed is captioning, transcription, and note-taking software that helps people who are disabled or neurodivergent become more independent.

Unlike in-built captions, Caption.Ed provides highly accurate, lightning-fast speech-to-text which means users get access to consistent, reliable captioning software. Combine that with the power of in-app note-taking and Caption.Ed is a product which truly helps people thrive in work and education.

Key Features
  • Caption.Ed allows users to add captions instantly to their meetings, lectures or seminars. You can also add time stamped notes, synced to the transcript, and highlight key information so you never miss out on the important stuff.
  • Caption.Ed outperforms all the major cloud providers for accuracy, including Microsoft, Amazon and Google. Users also rave about Caption.Ed’s ability to process dialogue in real-time.
  • Caption.Ed gives users the ability to screen record and capture the audio from any of their sessions. This media is then stored in the user’s library, alongside their transcript and notes, for them to refer back to at a later point.
  • Users can format their notes to help them better comprehend the information they capture during a Caption.Ed session. You can create headings, make text bold, italicise text, underline text, and even add bullet points.
  • Users can customise Caption.Ed to suit their visual preferences. You can drag and resize the Caption.Ed widget, or even pin it to the front of your screen if required. Caption.Ed also offers Dark, Light, and Sepia viewing modes to improve readability for users.

Overcome barriers with live captioning
Turn spoken word into text in real time, in any setting. Being able to follow the words on a screen as they’re spoken makes it easier to access and absorb information during lectures, seminars, study meetings and when you need to do your own research.

Banish information overload with assisted note taking
Make complicated information more manageable with smart note summaries. Highlight what’s important and Jamworks will intelligently summarise what was said into bite-sized study notes.

Boost comprehension with AI generated quizzes
Test yourself with automatically generated revision quizzes. Jamworks converts your smart note summaries into a series of questions to help structure your revision. Each question is linked to the appropriate section of the recording, making it super simple to refresh your memory on important topics.

Personalise your productivity
Study more productively with Jamworks on your mobile, laptop or tablet. Information is synced across devices for all in-person and online study sessions.

Your lecture recordings, when you need them
Use Jamworks to record your lectures, seminars and study meetings and you’ll be able to access them whenever you want. Study on your own terms – no more waiting around for your institution to upload.

Less pressure to keep up
To help you avoid feeling overwhelmed in class, Jamworks provides full text transcripts of the entire session. Beat information-FOMO, boost your ability to focus and be more present in the moment. You no longer need to worry about noting down every...single...syllable.

An easier way to take notes
Highlight important snippets of information to create bite-sized revision clips. Simply press the Highlight button when you hear something important to save a short recording, along with a text transcript of what was said. Add your own notes during a live session and go back later to add further context or anything that you missed.

Support if you lose concentration
Don’t worry if you zone out or miss something during a lecture or seminar, simply select the Trackback button to jump back in 15-second increments to start highlighting from the point where you lost concentration.

Customise your learning experience
Choose from pre-set accessibility profiles, such as: Seizure safe, Vision impaired, ADHD friendly & Cognitive disability or select from dozens of custom adjustments to make the most of Jamworks – no matter your ability, disability or specific learning difficulty.

Time for the things you love
Study more productively and confidently with Jamworks, so that you have more time and a better head space to do the things you love outside of your studies.

Not getting the most from class? Only a third of students think they get value from lectures. And no wonder!

The volume and speed of the information is overwhelming so it’s harder to take effective notes and learn.

Glean screen picture

It’s distracting during class
You can either try and capture information in notes or actively listen and engage in discussion.

The medium doesn't work for you
We mostly study and teach with text, but spoken information might resonate more.

In-class or online, recording is the foundation of your Glean notes.

Instantly screenshot online classes to capture additional information not included in the slides.

It’s a process, not an outcome
The act of taking notes helps you to learn, so using class or peer notes affects understanding.

Glean is the antidote to information overload
Our proven four-step process empowers you to extract all the value you need from class so you can be more confident in what you’re learning.

Lightning Mode
Stay focused on class while marking the key moments that matter to you.
