Why Teams Choose Notta over Happy Scribe

Notta and Happy Scribe help you generate transcripts of your online meetings; however, they differ in certain aspects. While Happy Scribe is more inclined towards generating transcriptions and subtitles, Notta is an all-rounder meeting assistant. Here we compare both Notta and Happy Scribe in more detail.

1. Flexible transcription minutes

Notta is ideally suited for large teams or individuals requiring hours of transcription. Its free plan offers 120 minutes per month, whereas the paid Pro plan, which costs $13.99 monthly, provides 1800 transcription minutes. 

Note: With the Free plan, you can enjoy up to 3 minutes per live transcription and up to 5 minutes per file transcription.

With the Notta Business plan, you can increase the transcription time limit from 2400 to 12,000 minutes monthly. Hence, Notta is a great AI-powered speech-to-text tool that lets you transcribe more minutes at affordable prices. 

In contrast, Happy Scribe's paid Pro plan provides 120 monthly transcription minutes at $17. The Business plan billed at $49 per month provides 600 minutes which can be expanded to 6000 hours/month at additional charges.

2. Fast and accurate transcription

With Notta's advanced artificial intelligence technology, you can transcribe a live recording, an online meeting, or an audio file with 98.86% accuracy. In addition, the ultimate meeting assistant lets you transcribe a 1-hour-long meeting in only 5 minutes. Hence, it won't be wrong to say that Notta can transcribe online meetings faster and more accurately. 

Happy Scribe offers automatic transcription and human-generated transcripts of audio and video files. While the accuracy level of human-generated transcription is 99%, the automatic feature lets you transcribe meetings with 80-85% accuracy. Even though the human-generated transcripts have high accuracy, you'll have to pay a hefty $2 per minute.

3. Schedule and record online meetings

For an overall meeting experience, you'll need a tool that can not only transcribe but also schedule and record meetings. Let's see how Notta proves to be a better AI meeting assistant than Happy Scribe. 

Scheduling: Unlike Happy Scribe, which caters only to your transcribing needs, Notta extends its capabilities to scheduling and recording online sessions. The built-in scheduler feature of Notta lets you schedule meetings directly from the dashboard. 

Recording: If you attend multiple virtual meetings, you understand how cumbersome it is. You can deploy a Notta Bot to listen, record, and transcribe meetings in minutes. On the other hand, Happy Scribe mainly focuses on transcribing rather than recording.

4. Summarize meetings quickly

Notta provides an AI Summary Generator to summarize the transcript quickly and accurately. The lengthy transcripts converted into bite-sized text can help you receive more information in less time, thereby improving productivity. 

In contrast, Happy Scribe currently does not offer any summarizing tool. However, they will release the Happy Scribe's AI Assist Summary feature soon. With  AI Assist, you can summarize text in short, medium, or long format.
