Audtra: "audio" + "transcription"
Audtra is the first, social voice/transcription app (patent-pending no. 15,892/411), helping people/brands share deeper connections than traditional social or calling 10+ people with the same news. The ad-free, FB-alternative can’t see content even if subpoenaed.
Bringing listeners and leaders on one platform, content creators also earn 50% net of followers subscribing to hear their 1s-5m micro-podcasts. With thought analytics and no trolling ability, Audtra reinvents social.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Instead of enriching oligopolies for none of their revenue, female-founded Audtra created a new economy empowering anyone to monetize content from anywhere.
