Krisp

With remote work on the rise for nonprofits, background noise during meetings can be very distracting. Whether working from home, a coffee shop or an airport, Krisp removes most background noise, other voices and even echos, using an AI algorithm to isolate your voice and/or the people you’re speaking to.
