The most annoying thing about recording videos
There is nothing worse than being on a conference call and recording a distance learning video, doing a live lesson, a pre-record lesson, a Zoom meeting, a staff meeting, whatever it may be, and then all of a sudden, you hear that sweet baby crying, or your neighbors decided it's a perfect time to do a re-model and you hear the construction, or you hear a lawn mower, kids are coming in and out, TV's on.
It's a lot of things. It's really easy to one: get distracted and two: it's hard to hide that noise.
So I found this really cool website in one of my business groups that I'm in and I want to share it with you, because if you still have all that noise, right, you can't tell your neighbors to stop remodeling, although I've wanted to at times. But who has time to stop what you're doing and rerecord everything?
Not me and most likely, not you!
Remove background noise easily
So I'm going to show you something that's really neat that will block out the sound from your neighbors or from whoever so that the people on your call aren't necessarily hearing it.
And then here's what's really cool with this free resource, you can also block out the sound from the people on your call.
So you might have that really sweet co-worker who hasn't figured out yet how to mute their microphone, or they have a lot of noise. Their neighbors are doing construction or whatever, and it's coming through for you.
And then I'm going to show you how this tool works.
Just watch the video below to see how amazing it is! If you have trouble watching it, try it in Chrome. It's acting funny in Safari for me!
I'm using the free version right now but just upgraded to the paid plan that's $4 a month. And I'm like, “Yes, take all my money. Anything to make my life easier.”
Get the free tool here!
So let me know if you have any questions and I can't wait to hear how much easier this makes your life as you are working from home.
