What do the buttons do?

Jamworks has 3 buttons that will take notes for you - when you press a highlight button, the audio you're recording is transcribed to text, so you don't need to type anything! The text will also be summarised for you using AI.

Master controls

There are three main control buttons in the app which highlight information from a recording. These buttons are described below:


Here is the highlight button. You can use this to start highlighting something important - for example useful information about an assessment. Tap it to start highlighting, and click it again to end the highlight.

Flag - you can use this button to drop a pin on important sections of your lectures. This marks a 10-second highlight (5 seconds before and 5 seconds after you clicked the button) which you can refer back to after the recording.


Trackback, your lifesaver. If your lecturer has moved to a new topic and you were daydreaming a little, that topic could be 45 seconds in once you realise its super important, so hit the trackback button 3 times (or as many as you need) to jump back in 15-second increments, and start highlighting from where you left off.

Capture controls

Jamworks allows you to choose what you want to record. By default it captures your screen content and audio. To change this you click 'Mute Audio' or 'Pause Screen'.

Mute Audio

By clicking this button, Jamworks will just capture your screen content, it won't track any audio (ambient or machine-generated) so you'll just be left with silent video clips.

Pause Screen

By clicking this button, Jamworks will just capture the audio (ambient and machine-generated), it won't track any screen content so you'll just be left with audio clips.

Camera controls

If you're using Jamworks to record with your camera, you can pause the camera feed, and preview the camera feed using the controls shown above.


Your highlight playlist from the recording is displayed below the buttons. This will show you every highlight that you've created with any of the buttons.

All highlights can be renamed live during the lecture, and can also be deleted by clicking on the trash icon on the right of the highlight.

By clicking on the green pencil you can name highlights so that you can keep them organised. This will help you search for your highlights later on.
