Zhang Guolei has worked as a jewelry designer, a lecturer on efficient reading, and is the founder of a painting training center. At his training center, Zhang has been using the iFLYTEK AI Notebook, greatly improving the efficiency of his and his team’s work and enabling the full realization of new designs and ideas.
Zhang has always sought to create. He has been practicing painting and calligraphy since childhood. In 2015, his work won the “Most Innovative Design” award at the China Jewelry and Craftsman Contest, a great honor in the field.
In 2012, Zhang shifted from producing mainly traditional designs, including furniture and lacquerware, to painting and established a painting training center with his wife. Focusing on art education for children, the pair hopes to tap into their creative potential and teach them to develop their passion for art.

Zhang manages all aspects of the training center including lesson preparation, teaching, and attending business meetings. He uses the iFLYTEK AI Notebook to assist his daily tasks. The notebook can record speeches in real time and transcribe the recording into text, which is organized by speaker. Zhang is able to share meeting minutes soon after the meeting ends, with no need to do further filing.
The iFLYTEK AI Notebook has improved Zhang’s efficiency by making it easier for his entire team to fully engage during meetings. “While they are concentrated on taking notes, they are not able to fully engage in the thinking activities,” Zhang said of his team. He pointed out that “even a professional and skilled employee would find it hard to keep up with all the speakers and write down the key points, which would largely impact the results of meetings.”
“Since I have begun using the iFLYTEK AI Notebook for online and offline meetings, my colleagues feel assured when I’m at the meeting,” Zhang said. He also uses the product for handling emails, which enables him to use handwritten signatures to confirm his sent messages.
In addition to using the iFLYTEK AI Notebook to deal with his work, Zhang regularly uses it to read. Since adopting the iFLYTEK AI Notebook two years ago, Zhang has stored over 100 e-books on arts, work efficiency, and management on the product. During business trips, Zhang can read his collection of books and simultaneously take notes on them through the smart device.
At the very beginning, Zhang thought the iFLYTEK AI Notebook was no different from other e-book products. After using the AI Notebook, he was pleased to find that it supports handwriting “just like on ordinary paper”, in addition to an impressive retrieval function. Calling the iFLYTEK AI Notebook “a companion for self-improvement,” he said, “It effectively aids people keen on learning and has greatly eased my anxiety.”
“When I look back to my past years, if I only have a few days spent idly doing nothing, I would call it a perfect life,” he added.
When asked about his impression of the company iFLYTEK and its products, he said: “A good company presents itself with good products. The iFLYTEK AI Notebook seems to be customized for me. Every time I use it, I feel an attachment to it where I realize it is a part of my life.”
