My recommendation is to just jabber scribe through Meetecho. The chat 
window in Meetecho is the jabber room. This avoid having to do anything 
apart from opening a (modern) browser and joining the meetech session. No 
other prerequisites exist really, no special jabber client, no jabber 
account, nothing. The only thing you need is your IETF registration ID 

When I jabber scribe (and I've jabber scribed probably 30-50 sessions) I 
sit down next to the front microphone and as people come up to the mic and 
start talking, I read their name tag and write this into the Meetecho chat 
session. This means there is an audio/visual/text binding between the name 
of the speaker and the sound of the speaker. This also helps the minute 
taker to get the names right.

Being a jabber scribe is easy this way, and for me it makes it easier to 
remember people's names.
