How does the automatic transcription work?

The free manual function helps you speed up your "traditional" transcriptions, listening and writing word by word. Our easy shortcuts allow you to stop and replay your audio more easily, without taking your hands off the keyboard.

How does the automatic transcription work?

The automatic transcription works by uploading an audio file and waiting a couple of minutes for it to be processed and delivered back to you as a text.

In case of particular words or proper names, it's possible to insert these key words before starting the transcription, to help the system recognize them correctly.

The words recognized as "possibly inaccurate" by the system are highlited in bold, to make it easier for the user to listen and correct them, directly on our text editor.

The document can then be exported and downloaded.

How accurate are the automatic transcriptions?

Usually the system recognizes with 100% accuracy about 90/95% of the words. Depending on the language, accent, pitch and audio quality, this number can vary drastically.

Automatic transcriptions still need to be quickly reviewed by the user: at the moment ther isn't any artificial intelligence capable of transcribing with perfect accuracy.

What determines the price of an automatic transcription?

The price of an automatic transcription is determined by the duration of the selected audio file.

Hour packs allow you to buy multiple hours of transcription in advance with an increased discount, saving on the final price.
