I just saw this posting. Please see my answers immediately after each question.
“I’m a registered user and have a call scheduled for Wednesday. I’ve selected the option to record the call and would like to know:
1. How are the callers informed that the call is being recorded?
If we are talking here about a Scheduled Rondee (which I assume we are), the invite page that they clicked through to before accepting the invitation specifies that the call is being recorded.
2. Will a link be sent after the call to download the recording or will I have to go to the site for it?
We are working on the ability to have a link automatically sent to the organizer, and this ability will be available soon. At this point, however, a link will appear on that very same invite page when the conference is over and will remain there for 30 days in order to allow the recording to be downloaded.
3. Will anyone on the call be able to download the recording or do I have to distribute it to them?
If we are talking here about a Scheduled Rondee (which I assume we are), any of the invitees will be able to access the link to download the recording as long as they can navigate their way back to that invite page.
4. I’ve added some money to my account via Paypal because I’d like to have call transcribed, too. How do I set up the transcription option?
At this point, the transcription feature is in beta testing. I’d be delighted to have you participate. At this point, it is entirely manual and the cost is $1 per minute.
