I am wondering if I can get some advice, I am seeking an iPhone compatible microphone. The microphone must be good for picking up speech from a fairly far distance and in an echoing room. The situation is this, I am on a committee where 5 of us meet in person, but the minute taker joins us via zoom. So the microphone needs to be able to capture voices from different directions and fairly spread out around the room. Also we need to be able to hear the minute taker through the iPhone speaker when the microphone is connected. I have come across several before posting hear which actually disable output from the iPhone speaker when connected and this automatically rules them out as we need to hear both the minute taker and can't have VoiceOver being inaudible when we need to end the meeting.
any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I suppose I was thinking of us either being able to all wear collar mounted microphones or maybe some good free standing microphone, we don't really want to have to keep passing a microphone round the room just so the note taker can hear us.
