Have a question?
No problem Lucas.
Unfortunately the way things came up Senstone doesn't work for me.
Please refund me.
Thanks for the quick reaction. For now that is good for me. Dutch isn't supported in this fase, so I don't need it right now. Perhaps you will support Dutch in the future. Than I will have an great device!
Let me clarify:
- with Senstone you can record meetings, and as a result you will have a reasonably good audio recording, depending on how far everyone was. You can even record for 1-2 hours straight without a phone, as battery and storage will allow this.
- BUT you will ONLY get audio recording, and NO speech-to-text transcription. This is caused by difficulty to capture good quality audio on large distance and by the price of speech-to-text translation engine per minute.
- as a result the usage will be limited to traditional recorder: you can only listen to the recording and not have text version of it or other features like emotion analysis or creating todo lists or reminders.
But as the above is not very innovative, what we offer is to record your ideas as they occur during or after the meeting to Senstone as short bullet items, have them converted to text and organised in separate "folder" with hashtags or keywords and have your own personal meetings minutes, instead of a long recording.
We're sorry if this disappointed you and if we didn't communicate this clearly enough before. In our last update we explain why we made those decisions, and I hope they make sense to you.
Please let me know what you think about this.
I am a little bit confused. I wanted to use the Senstone mostly as a small recording tool for meetings. After the meeting, I can listen to the recording and make a summary.
A meeting can take 1 to 3 hours.
Can the Senstone do this?
I'm mostly interested in personal messages and conversations only one on one, so the larger fears don't bother me. I'd be glad to be a beta tester...have time to really work it.
Any updates on how I can change my order to the trail version?
@Tiffany, also can I ask why you changed your mind? Was it something we did?
Sure Tiffany, will do that.
I've decided not to purchase this product. Please refund me
@Markiyan @Sasha Thanks for the info! Great :).
@Karl Delandsheere yes it will be, it is already :)
here's the list of languages supported to make this simpler for you https://goo.gl/Tg7oqg
@Sasha thanks for helping out ;)
Karl, there's a list of planned dictation languages in the Campaign tab (you will have to scroll down a bunch to get to it).
Hi, I don't know wether it has been asked already or not. Will Senstone be non-English speaking friendly? :) Cheers!
Thanks so much @PJ Sam!
Honestly this is one of the best Kickstarter campaigns I have been part of you guys post relevant updates and engage people in the comments just want to say keep up the good work
@sokompheak yes definitely. We aim for regular biweekly updates, but delayed this one because we waited for confirmation on one of directions, to give more concrete info. But we'll prioritize on regularity further on. There will be an update on Monday, we've got some progress to share ;)
Hello @Creator, I would like to hear any update of this campaign regularly, would I?
Sure, we think we'll do a regular biweekly update, next one coming soon;)
It would be great to have a formal update sometime soon to see how things are going :) can't wait for the finished product
Thanks! We'll do a more formal call for beta testers among backers soon, but good to have you on board ;)
Hi, if you need any help beta testing the Android App, I would be willing to help. I carry an iPhone 7 and a Galaxy S7 Edge so I would be able to check what is different between them. Cheers!
The update is on its way! Some important developments to let you know about.
Any updates? You guys have been silent these past few days?
@Andreas we haven't considered that, but this may be a good idea. Not sure how many of our backers have used Dragon before, and how difficult is the integration, but it's worth a check. Thanks, we'll take a look at it!
Hi! Since you use Nuance software for speech recognition, will there be an option to sync existing profiles of their Dragon products for Desktop or iOS? (Would be great if it doesn't need again to get used to your voice etc.)
@Laura no not yet. when we do it, we will make a lot of buzz to make sure each backer notices it.
But there are some updates coming soon.
@Sasha that's just too funny :)
Nazar showed it to me yesterday I couldn't hold it)
Have we been sent the email asking for our mailing address yet? Thanks.
I ran across something related to speech recognition today that will probably amuse most of you... http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/…
Apologies for getting to you late and thanks a lot for your patience!
We started talking to several manufacturers since the end of the campaign -- we really meant this when when we put out our last update "We're Funded! Now Let's Get to Work". Will be posting more updates soon -- still exploring and setting up the Backerkit but you will here from us very soon -- thanks again for your patience.
Thanks for your message. Apologies for getting to you so long -- quite pre-occupied with the production issues right now.
We are exploring the Backerkit and most probably will work through them. I believe you will be able to cancel it from there, if not -- we will handle it directly. But please give us at least one more week as we are in transition funds period when we still handling number of administrative and logistical issues with the platform.
Best of All!
Same, please cancel my pledge and refund. I have waited so many days to hear back, and just now am receiving a reply which is disappointing.
Hello, I've sent a message to the creator of this project but I have not heard back as of yet. I unfortunately cannot realistically afford this as of now, and I would like to cancel my pledge for the Senstone and receive a refund to my card. I apologize for having to ask this, and I wish I could afford the fruits of this project.
@Darius Constantin @Rich @Steve Cox @Srikanth B
Thanks so much guys!! We can't wait to give it into your hands ;)
Stay tuned for updates, much coming up, we're hoping to build Senstone with your help!
so sorry, this offer is no longer available :(
It was a limited offer before end of campaign. You can still get 2nd item through Indiegogo or as an add on, but it won't be in half the price unfortunately (
Usually both audio and text are posted, but in case when monthly limit is reached audio will be stored without text.
As for API - not sure I got your question right, but we don't plan exposing our API to public soon, rather integrating with other apps through their API or working with select partners in private. Is that what you asked?
@everyone thanks so much much for your support! sorry for delay on your comments/questions last week, it was hectic setting up manufacturing & development. It's still hectic but we're here:) answering all your questions and will also ask lots of your feedback. Stay tuned!
Congratulations on your funding guys!
I really have tried everything. I cannot change my pledge. I would very much like to get the extra one for half off. Can you help me?
Hi Nazar, I just received your email with the opportunity of replacing my current reward with the 1+1 at half price. I want to do that but I am having a hard time changing my reward. Can you please guide me?
I have been waiting almost 70 years for this product......................FINALLY someone has done what needed to be done to save ideas before they disappear ! Congratulations creators!!!
Congrats on funding ! Expect to wait 14 days for your $ from Kickstarter. Cant wait to test Senstone out.
Well done ! Congratulations ! In a big world a small senstone has been born. :)
Keep up with more staff and grow bigger. Good luck !
In future we hope that there will be more ideas.
I tried to read through the comment Trail, so forgive me if My inquiry has been answered. Can the audio be posted without speech-to-text, especially with the potential transcription monthly limit. Also, what is the status of the API and the app?Excited and waiting delivery!
@Markiyan Thank you. Experience is more helpful than just saying AWS :-) From friends who've done AWS, and know security, just be careful...
I personally worked on government(UK) software projects and passed penetration testing and audits and our team has gone through software security numerous times in their previous projects. We use standard mechanisms such as OAuth2, HTTPS, session tokens etc to manage authentication/authorization, secure the connection and communication, and then encrypt the data on backend. There's also a whole different procedure on device-to-phone level. Hope this gives you some more confidence ;)
@ creator send you a message please check and reply before the projects ends thanks
